Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Cerebral player, quick to react to twists and stunts up front, and Haladay shows an excellent understanding of angles when moving out as a run blocker.
  • Fires out of his stance with a good pad level, consistently winning at the point of attack.
  • Shows good awareness after the snap, reacting and positioning himself against twists and stunts
  • Showing some nastiness to his game, he will sustain blocks through the whistle, thriving when he’s in the phone booth.
  • His high football IQ and the ability to set protections at the line of scrimmage will make him popular with position coaches. He’s instinctive after the snap, reading and reacting quickly to stunts and twists and showing an understanding of angles in the run game.
  • Displays good awareness when it comes to reading moving bodies, effectively reacting and adjusting. Haladay also shows a good feel for combo blocks.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Tends to slip off blocks when going against bigger linemen, and Haladay too often finishes plays on the ground.
  • Raw as a pass protector, looking choppy and unnatural when moving back into his set, often playing too upright.
  • Has fairly heavy feet, struggling to mirror against quicker defenders. Haladay lacks the range to get out as an effective puller, and he can often look stiff when moving out into space and zeroing in on bodies.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
