Packers select safety from Alabama with first pick
NEW YORK - The long-awaited first round of the NFL draft has brought a safety with a funny name to Green Bay.
Safety Hasean "Ha-Ha" Clinton-Dix has been chosen by the Packers with their first round pick, the 21st selection overall.
Clinton-Dix had 7 interceptions in college, including 5 in the 2012 season. He was teammates with Packers star running back Eddie Lacy with the Crimson Tide.
The Packers signed cornerback Sam Shields to a contract extension recently, and wanted to pair Shields with a top-notch safety.
