Biography: Started at H-back for Oregon State the past three years. Senior totals included 31 receptions/268 yards/3 TDs after 30/390/6 as a junior. Career-best numbers of 35/486/3 came as a sophomore.
Positives: Solid pass-catching tight end prospect with marginal size/speed numbers. Bends his knees, plays with leverage and easily moves about the field. Effectively finds the soft spot in the defense and works to make himself an available target. Solid pass catcher who easily adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception in stride. Flashes the ability to get downfield and possesses good eye/hand coordination. Gives effort blocking.
Negatives: Lacks overall quickness in his game and does not have a true burst. More of a one-speed tight end. Marginal skill as a blocker.
Analysis: Halahuni flashed skill since his sophomore season yet never elevated his game or improved on the field. He offers potential as a move tight end/H-back at the next level, though he must come to camp ready to play this summer.
