Corey Linsley, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix named to PFWA All-Rookie team

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 13, 2015 – 2:12 pm

GREEN BAY — Packers draft picks Corey Linsley and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix were named to the Pro Football Writers of America All-Rookie team.

Linsley, a center, was a fifth-round draft choice out of Ohio State, while Clinton-Dix, a safety, was a first-round pick from Alabama.

The St. Louis Rams led the way with three All-Rookie selections, including DT Aaron Donald, who was named PFWA’s Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. was named both Rookie of the Year and Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Other NFC North selections included Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater on offense, Chicago CB Kyle Fuller on defense and Chicago P Pat O’Donnell on special teams.

Three Packers awarded game balls from Miami

Posted by Mike Spofford on October 13, 2014 – 5:54 pm

GREEN BAY — The Packers coaching staff awarded three game balls from the 27-24 victory over Miami on Sunday.

On offense, the game ball went to right guard T.J. Lang, who recovered a third-down fumble by QB Aaron Rodgers on the game-winning drive, which kept the Packers alive for what turned out to be a fourth-down conversion from Rodgers to Jordy Nelson en route to the game-winning TD.

On defense, rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was the recipient. The press box statistics credited Clinton-Dix with a team-high seven tackles, all solo, including one for loss and one pass broken up. Mike McCarthy said on Monday he felt Clinton-Dix played his best game to date.

On special teams, the game ball went to Micah Hyde, who had two punt returns totaling 41 yards. His 24-yard return in the second quarter came when he escaped a mass of humanity in the middle of the field, and his 17-yarder in the fourth quarter put the offense on the 40-yard line to start the final drive.

NFL rookies attended the NFL Rookie Symposium in Ohio this week. The event serves as an orientation for all drafted rookies, covering topics such as player health and safety, decision making, and substance abuse/domestic violence prevention.

Packers first-round draft pick Ha Ha Clinton-Dix blogged about his experience on SportsBlog.com.

“This event is an eye-opener,” Clinton-Dix said. “It’s giving us an outlook on players who had great careers in the league and still made bad decisions. To see the things they went through, and listen to them talk about how we can avoid those mistakes, it’s definitely been helpful.”

The former Alabama safety sounded eager to start his rookie campaign in Green Bay.

“I’m very pumped and excited about the season,” Clinton-Dix said. “It’s a dream come true, leaving one title town and going to another. There’s a great fan base, great coaches, a great quarterback and a great team period.”

It’s Ha Ha time in Green Bay; Packers pick Clinton-Dix

Posted by Vic Ketchman, packers.com editor on May 8, 2014 – 9:34 pm

GREEN BAY–The fans’ pick is the Packers’ pick.

Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix is the Packers’ first pick of the 2014 NFL draft. The Alabama star was selected with the No. 21 overall choice. The pick will no doubt be met with favor among Packers fans who began a campaign to draft Clinton-Dix shortly after last season ended with a Packers safety failing to have intercepted a pass.

Clinton-Dix, 6-1, 208, is the second safety selected in this draft. Louisville’s Calvin Pryor was chosen 18th overall by the Jets.

“Smart, instinctive, good anticipation. More of a true centerfielder,” packers.com draft analyst Tony Pauline said of Clinton-Dix.

Packers.com has updated this story with a more complete version.
