Packers get last laugh with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

The Packers did something unusual.

They didn’t trade down, and they found the safety help they needed.

The Packers used the 21st overall pick on Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, who could add the playmaker they need to help cover Lions first-round right end Eric Ebron and others.

Clinton-Dix is the kind of rangy safety they need in the back of a defense that improved this offseason, with the addition of Julius Peppers.
