Player Overview

A three-star OG recruit, Halapio decided to stay in-state and commit to Florida over offers from Notre Dame and Colorado.

He played in three games as a true freshman before a knee injury knocked him out for the rest of the year, taking a medical redshirt. Halapio was a SEC All-Freshman in 2010 and started every game in 2011 and 2012 at RG, but his senior season was marred by injuries, specifically a pectoral tear that he toughed out most of the season.

He is tough as nails and a no-nonsense type of blocker, but the long-term durability is worrisome. Halapio isn?t the most fleet of foot and has technique issues to work through, but he is country strong with the initial hand punch to drive defenders and shield the pocket ? won?t be a fit for everyone, but should be a quality depth player in a power-based scheme.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Adequate frame and length with solid bulk throughout?good set-up and initial punch with the upper body strength to pancake and bury?blocks with violent intentions with natural power in his joints, bringing his feet and hips with him through contact?good knee bend to keep his belt low and parallel to the ground.

Mobile enough to pull and engage in motion?nice job on seal blocks, using angles well, with the awareness to pick up extra rushers?smart and experienced with a firm grasp on the position ? had to learn three different schemes the past five years?admirable toughness with a hard-nosed, gritty demeanor?hard worker and leads by example ? junior and senior captain?good experience as a four-year starter (43 career starts).

WEAKNESSES: Only average lateral quickness and struggles to mirror or recover?limited overall range and ability at the second level?clear body stiffness through his hips, struggling to cleanly redirect his momentum?inconsistent leverage and his pad level tends to gravitate ? can be driven backwards due to his inconsistent base and overall technique?aggressive nature makes it tough for him to reset after initial jab.

Injury riddled senior season and played with a 80% tear in his pectoral muscle after a weight lifting injury in Aug. 2013 ? also dealt with other back, shoulder and eye injuries in 2013 and a knee injury in 2009?all of his experience has come at RG and his style won?t fit every blocking scheme.
