This year, another kicker is hoping to use the regional scouting combine to boost their profile. According to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com, Lauren Silberman will become the first female player to participate in a regional combine when she kicks on March 2-3 at the regional site in New Jersey. Louis Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein took advantage of the NFL’s newly implemented regional scouting combine process a year ago to help gain notice out of Division II Missouri Western State University. However, the long-shot nature of her bid isn't stopping the 28-year-old New Yorker from becoming the first woman in history to register for an NFL regional scouting combine, which features players who weren't invited to the main combine currently being held in Indianapolis. "I was not aware that I was the first female registrant," Silberman told NFL.com on Tuesday. If we're being completely honest, Lauren Silberman's odds of making a NFL team as its kicker are pretty much nonexistent. She was a club soccer player at the University of Wisconsin and attended MIT where she wrote a thesis on how athletes use video games to improve their performance.
