03/08/2012 - Hawaii Pro Day: Corey Paredes was the surprise of pro day, with impressive results in the speed and jumping disciplines. He was scolded a few times for not locking his arms during the 225-pound bench press, but was only deducted one rep. He was credited with 27 reps. Paredes is awaiting follow-up calls from NFL teams in the hope of landing private workouts. "He'll be in Hawaii preparing for whatever comes next," agent Alan Cunanan said. - Stephen Tsai, The Warrior Beat

03/06/2012 - More than a dozen former Warriors participated in Hawaii's Pro Day workout watched by personnel from 26 NFL teams in Carson, Calif. on Monday. The school moved its annual workout to California in recent years to make it easier for more scouts to attend. The top-rated prospect at the event according to NFLDraftScout.com ratings was Vaughn Meatoga. The 6-1, 299-pounder is the 22nd-rated defensive tackle in the 2012 class. He was invited to the Scouting Combine, and stood by those numbers, sitting out Monday's agility drills. He lifted the 225-pound bench press 27 times in Indianapolis, ran a 5.00-second 40-yard dash and was fifth among all defensive linemen with a 4.21-second short shuttle. Another fringe draftable prospect is outside linebacker Corey Paredes, who ran an impressive 4.55-second 40, according to the school's website. Wide receiver Royce Pollard ran a 4.57 in the 40, while offensive lineman Brett Leonard lifted the 225-pound bench press 25 times. Hawaii had three players drafted last year and has had at least one in 10 of the past 12 years. - NFLDraftScout.com

09/09/2011 - SCOUTING THE DEFENSE: Hawaii's high-flying offense generated most of the headlines last season, but the Warriors were quietly setting records on defense as well.

They also ranked second in the nation with 23 interceptions and ninth with 15 fumble recoveries. The Warriors return six starters from that unit, including three of their top four tacklers, and it showed against Colorado. Hawaii held the Buffaloes to 240 yards total offense and 17 rushing yards.
