Hawaii hosted its pro day on March 31, not near the beautiful beaches of Honolulu but rather the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif.
Seventeen players worked out in front of representatives from 30 teams, including Green Bay Packers general manager Ted Thompson and Oakland Raiders head coach Hue Jackson.
Running back Alex Green (6-0 1/4, 224) was a standout, building on his performance at the NFL Scouting Combine in February. He helped himself with his positional workout, showcasing good hands and impressive explosion in his running style.
Green has scheduled upcoming visits with the Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, and Tennessee Titans.
A player not invited to the combine made waves as well. Keanemana Silva sent a lot of people scrambling to find out more about the defensive back after he delivered an eye-opening performance at pro day. Silva (6-0 3/4, 206) averaged a 40 time of 4.44 on two runs, had a 40-inch vertical leap, 10-3 broad jump, 4.16 short shuttle, 7.01 three-cone drill, and 23 strength lifts.
Two Hawaii wide receivers also excelled:
Kealoha Pilares (5-10 3/8, 201) posted two 40 times of 4.42, had a 40 1/2 inch vertical leap, 10-5 broad jump, 4.11 short shuttle, and 6.85 three-cone drill.
Gregory Salas (6-1 1/2, 214) stood on all of his combine numbers, but looked good in positional workouts.
