Some of the above are possible, but post a video if you can because it could be a number of other things as well, such as trying to start the bar too far back over the foot.

Like Jacob said, work some clean DLs, then clean pull, then clean pull + clean, etc. to really focus on that first pull. Also, for now, slow it down - no need to rush the first pull at this point until you really have the movement dialed in.
