The Jacksonville Jaguars will host Hawaii safety Mana Silva for a private workout today, Big Cat Country has learned. Silva played the strong safety position for the Hawaii Warriors after transferring from Oregon State. Silva has nice size for the safety position at 6-1 206lbs and ran a 4.43 the 40-yard dash. Silva also posted a 40 inch vertical leap at the Hawaii Pro Day.
Silva was a ball hawk for the Warriors in 2010, netting 8 interceptions on the season. In two seasons as a starting safety at Hawaii, Silva was able to pick the ball off a total of 14 times and post 70+ tackles in both the 2009 and 2010 seasons. Right now, Mana Silva is projected to be a late round draft pick, but he has been a rising prospect in some scouts eyes.
