Vince gets a 6 on the Wonderlic?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; There has been other to have scored even lower and ended up in the Hall of Fame. I am still waiting to hold judgement until the official results come out. They are not to be released until after the combine ...

There has been other to have scored even lower and ended up in the Hall of Fame. I am still waiting to hold judgement until the official results come out. They are not to be released until after the combine is over. Kind of weird for that score to leak out and no others. I just think that with all this uncertainty that the Saints will be better off going OL, scooping up D'Brick. I am hoping Mongold doesn't reach the second round but he was so impressive he may make it. Bently gets signed and them 3 alone will be a force on our OL for years to come.

That 16 score was leaked by his agent in response to the rumor of a "6" score. Marino's supposed 14 can't be verified by ESPN folks so may or may not be accurate. Though it is said he scored low. As I've said elsewhere, this isn't the end of Young, just another strike against him.

As for the OL, I'm waiting to see what the FO does based upon Payton's evaluations before passing judgement on them as a whole. I think they're better than they played this year, the false starts show that they wern't practicing as well as should be. I'll let that go because of Katrina, Haslett, and a rookie.

Marino's score was actually a 16.

Agents don't get the results... until after it is posted at the end of the combine. Someone - NFL employee would have had to have leaked that info. and who would have done that risk losing there job.

Euph, if you check out the link I provided earlier in this thread it states:

ESPN.com's John Clayton reported that Young scored a 16 on his second try (according to his agent) and he's expected to take it a third time.
SO it was his agent who gave out the 16.

The full report of Wonderlic scores distributed to NFL teams reportedly ommitted Vince Young.
Young's future won't be decided by this score, but he needs this story to go away. There are further reports that Young didn't score a 16 on his re-test, which presents a problem for his agent who said he did. Mar. 5 - 12:28 pm et

Laugh. So basically, he scored lower than 16 the second time he took the exact same test?!

LOL....

Why does it have to be so polarized on these topics??? Either VY is going to the Hall of Fame on first ballot or he'll be a bum on the streets in 4 years???

The Wonderlic is just one evaluation that is used to gauge a player's future expectations. His low score is actually a positive for teams willing to trade up, and I'm sure that teams like the Titans, Jets and Packers know this. If no trades happen and he slips a bit, VY won't last past Detroit. Teams are not just going to forget his career numbers and performance at the Rose Bowl over one overrated exam.

sorry goldrush but the opinion goes far beyond for me. before he ever came close to having that score i said he would be nothing in the nfl. it has to be that way with him because that is what he brings. either a great talent or a terrible qb. there is no in between. my guess would say a whole lot of nothing in the nfl. really i could care less what he does in the nfl. just don't draft him new orleans and i could care less what he does one way or the other.
