    Isn't Marquice Cole in this years draft?

    It's a good thing Jay Cutler was a proven winner in college. Oh wait, nevermind.

      what i don't understand is how can a person who graduated from berkely score a 10 on the wonderlic?

Not to mention the one making the reads of the opposing team. Athletic ability is only a part of the game, you have to be able to think, read, memorize, and have a resemblence of intelligence.

        You don't want the guy on the offensive line that makes the reads and the calls (the center) to be the guy that can't remember what a 'right triangle' is. You don't want the RB that is supposed to read the blitz, and is responsible for picking up the guy that may KILL your QB, if he doesn't know what 2dimes and a nickle equal to.

        How are you supposed to have your QB and your WR on the 'same page' if the WR isn't intelligent enough to know how many sides are on a rectangle?

        If it comes down to choosing between two guys, both having reasonably the same amount of skill athletically, who are you going to choose? The guy that scores a 39, or the one that scores an 11?
        1. What does knowing what a "right triangle" have to do about making reads for a center?
        2. In what play will a RB need to know what "2dimes and a nickle" is?
        3. What formation requires a WR to know how many sides are on a rectangle?

        Generally speaking, jocks already aren't considered to be the smartest people on the planet. But Young didn't seem to be too dumb last year in his Play!

        It's like the exit exam in college. If you don't do well, it's not like they're going to hold for ransom your diploma.

            The only time I remember this test being controversial....

            ....is when someone as popular as Vince Young and Reggie Nelson test about as well as Corky Thatcher would....


            Then all of a sudden the test is useless!

                Which....Has....A....Lot....To....Do....With.... Playing....Football!!!!

                Talking slowly may help those who think this has nothing to do with playing football.

                  Which also explains why Mike Croel went to Nebraska

                      Yes. He bombed the test. But, remember that NFL teams don't just depend on the Wonderlic. They have interviews. And in the interviews they can talk to the player and find out whether he's really as dumb as a tree-stump or whether he just tests badly.

                      They can talk to him about his life and interests and see whether he can hold up his end of a conversation or whether he gets easily confused by shiny objects.

                      That's a good idea before you start throwing tens of millions of dollars at a player!

                        Good point. Eric Brown was the same way.

                              Because if they don't know how to do simple math then why would you wanna trust them with the complex names of plays and such? If a player can't add 10 + 10 + 5 then why would you think he could understand an entire NFL playbook and remember it to be effective?

                              You have to admit that its basic stuff and anyone should know it. Its not hard.
