Right now i\'m not going to worry about his wonderlic. He admits it takes him a little longer to learn things. He also says he has no problem to stay late to get things done right. He sounds like he was a good work ethic. He may have to study more than others but i think he will be prepared.

I heard he\'s a slow reader, and its a timed test.

I\'ve listened to his interviews and he doesn\'t sound dumb to me. He even commented about being annoyed that the test had very little to do with football.

He\'ll be OK.

Every year this comes up, this Wonderlic thing.

I\'m sure someone here knows, but what is the correlation between Wonderlic score and being a pro bowler? being a starter on a Super Bowl team? being a starter in the NFL?

I mean, I\'m just not convinced it tells you all that much.

Didn\'t Dan Marino score like a 3 or some ridiculous number?

I heard him in an interview on espn. radio and read a transcript of him...no-he\'s not einstein..but the guy came across very well and failry articulate.

If he is a poor reader that could have major implications for his wonderlic score..and while I do prefer smarter players there has been no flags about him that scream..whoa..this guy is dumb...

How hard could it be?

OK Jammal, on this play, you pancake that guy. After you pancake him, find the next closest guy and pancake him.

Go back to huddle for further instructions.

We should try that with some of our other low scoring Wonderlic players.

OK on this play just give the ball to Deuce. OK, this one is harder. You have to take a FEW - three or five , not 15 - steps back and throw the ball in THAT direction to one of those guys in BLACK with a number 80 or higher. Oh lord, that\'s too much for you to remember. Call a time out.

.yes, but Marino was stoned out of his mind when he took it...

... the wonderlic doesn\'t really measure \"intelligence\", but rather how fast you think, and how fast you think under pressure... \"cognitive ability\"...
ESPN\'s Page 2 has a few sample questions http://espn.go.com/page2/s/closer/020228test.html

..as you can see, you don\'t need an MIT degree to answer them... but it is one thing to answer them at your leasure, and a different thing when you have the added pressure of not only the time constraint, but knowing that a low score can mean literally millions of dollars lost because you may not be drafted has high as you should..

I just don\'t understand why people keeping bringing up \"wonderlick\" scores.

Like it really proves something!!

There are \"smarts\" and then there\'s \"football smarts.\"

I don\'t want Jammal Brown to ever perform open-heart surgery on me, but I\'d sure let him start at RT on my football team.

Some people just have a certain talent they are born with.

I know this guy who is a guitair player and he\'s a real dummy. But man he\'s one hell of a gutair player. He can\'t read music. Hell, he can barely read. But he\'s a better guitar player than some guys I know who are extremely talented.

It doesn\'t make any differnce how much those other guys practice, they\'ll never be as good as the \"dummy\" who plays gutair. He was just born with that talent.

And the samething is true in football. Some players are just naturally instinctive. They just make plays. They have a feel for the game.

Besides ... I don\'t know how smart you really need to be to block someone?!
