#67 Jon Halapio, (Junior) OG, Florida HGT: 6-3 WGT: 322  Jon Halapio has started 41 games at Right Guard for the Florida Gators. Halapio currently holds the most consecutive starts on the Florida offense with. This season, following the Gators win over Vanderbilt, Halapio was named SEC Co-Offensive Lineman of the week. In 2011, Halapio was the only offensive lineman to start every game at the same position. Halapio has been praised by coaches and teammates as being the leader of the offensive line and one of the key leaders in the Gator locker room. Following the 2010 season, Halapio was named to the Sporting News All-Freshman team and to the SEC All-Freshman team.  PROS: Halapio has good size and plays with good over-all strength. Plays with a good base in both the run and pass-game. Shows good athleticism and agility when asked to pull and when he gets out in space on screens. Halapio has a good get-off that helps him knock defenders off the ball in the run game, violent run blocker. Shows good footwork in the run game, is able to reach 3 techniques and cut off low shades. Does a good job stepping with the guy next to him, hip-to-hip to get push on double teams. Solid at squaring shoulders back up to the line of scrimmage when coming off of combo blocks on to the second level. Displays a good quick set in pass-protection, and plays with good pass-pro demeanor. Delivers a solid punch to defenders in pass-protection, shows good lateral movement when mirror defenders in 1-on-1 situations. Competitive and plays with a Nasty streak. CONS: Needs to consistently play with better, pad-level, at times falls off of blocks because of this. Does not look overly explosive through the hips. When pulling, often stops his feet on contact instead of running through the block. Must take better angles getting to the 2nd level of defenders, at times mis-targets and over runs linebackers. Needs to improver over-all hand placement. I question how long his arms are. Needs to have better patience in pass-protection, at times is to aggressive which leads to him dropping his head and missing his punch. Needs to get better at identifying and adjusting to movement (blitz’s and line games).  NOTES: Jon Halapio is a physical offensive lineman who operates in a “phone booth” so to speak. I like the potential I see out of Halapio with his athletic ability and his physicality he displays on every down. Halapio has shown he is durable with 41 starts in his career. I think Halapio’s skill-set is limited at this point, but with the right coaching, can be expanded which will make him a solid lineman in the NFL.
