Mante prepping for combine

Yale's record-setting punter Tom Mante is preparing for a combine Monday in Scottsdale, Arizona. Mante has been living in Arizona, working with a kicking coach and doing some coaching at a local high school. Mante said last year every NFL team had a rep at the combine and that 20 of the 50 participants were signed by NFL, CFL or UFL teams.

The work with a kicking coach has paid dividends.

"I wish I had done this a couple of years ago," Mante said. "I was able to kick it (far) at Yale. Now I am kicking if 45-50 yards consistently with a 5 (second) hangtime."

I've heard it was late morning and assume it's in the Coxe Cage, Smilow Field Center and Soccer Field like the senior pro day.
