Will a woman play in the NFL someday?

Female will compete at regional combine for first time


The NFL debuted its regional scouting combine concept back in 2011. Ten cities this year hold a regional combine from January to March, with the best players going to a super-regional in Dallas in April.


The March 2-3 New Jersey regional will mark a first in the regional combine process: A female player will compete.

Lauren Silberman of New York City will participate as a kicker. A club soccer player at Wisconsin, Silberman has taken a different path than your average college kicker. She wrote a Master's thesis at MIT about how athletes use video games to enhance their own performance. She then founded a consulting company Double Play that helps athletes use video games for virtual training purposes.

"I was not aware that I was the first female registrant," Silberman told NFL.com on Tuesday. "I was actually hoping that the 2012 historical milestone rule, to allow women to play, would prompt more women to attend tryouts this year. But for me, what's important is to finally have a chance to fulfill my dreams by trying out to play in the world's most competitive football league."

Silberman, 28, will be competing against plenty of college kickers. (Greg "Legatron" Zuerlein was a success story from last year's regional combines.) She's the ultimate long shot in an event full of them. Her story reminds me of Albert Breer's piece on making the regional combines an American Idol-style buildup to the main NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis.

"The opportunity to attend this event could not be more exciting. Getting to meet interesting people and perfect my technique from others could not be more rewarding. ... Regardless of the outcome of the tryout, I hope there is a way I can contribute and strengthen the league," Silberman said.

We wish Silberman all the best at her tryout and congratulate her on making some history.

I don't disagree with your opinion about men being better. Women aren't built like men, (well, I should say that the majority of us aren't).

However, I'm confused by your desire to not get physical when playing sports with women. I mean, are the women you play sports with prissy or are you just being respectful because of them being the "weaker sex"?

I'm not trying to be an ass, Hootie. I'm just curious.

I doubt that you'd see women reaching truly elite status at most positions in the NFL due to physical differences, but there are some very impressive female athletes that have a number of desirable mental and physical traits that could be above-average in football. The best female athletes in the world compare very favorably to a large portion of players in the NFL, but they understandably make the choice to pursue a sport that they can truly be elite in rather than struggle to make the team. Because of that, it's just a matter of motivation. If you could get the best female athlete in the US to specialize in football, I have no doubt that they'd challenge for a spot on an NFL roster.

If they matched the play of the average college player, then they would not challenge for an NFL roster.

They don't.

That's not an afterthought. It's the entire reason you won't see it.
