As always, there are always early leaks. There's always the question of accuracy, and always the questions of relevance.

Here are a handful of those scores:

Carlos Hyde: 9

Lol took the wonderlic test, scored a 37 rawr.. I can see why they give it though, as it's kind of interesting pressure test.

Oh Derek, that's a little low for a QB, you might want to put down the comic books and try reading something a little more challenging.

Blaine Gabbert just ruins any hypotheses you can postulate about the Wonderlic and QBs. :mariopalm:

Not really. Scared (and the ability to overcome it) is not purely a choice.

He's thinking too much about his health rather than standing tall and making the throw.

Yeah, but it would be a pretty solid list without Blaine Ponder in there. http://gfxlovers.com/smilies/imgs/girly/girly015.gif

The main reason that experts believe that the Wonderlic test is mainly predictive of QB, LB/DB performance in the NFL is because it is a hurried timed experience that tests thinking in terms of quick decisions. QBs, LBs and DBs must make quick reads.

I guess we can't question the Wonderlic's validity on the basis that Ponder is at the top of the list...........he makes the quickest decisions to either throw the ball away or fall down I've ever seen.:kitten:

I think another lesson worth taking away is that no QB with a score
Under 20 is successful

The greatest "cerebral" QB ever to play the game scored a 28 out of 50. That should tell you something.

Maybe he's not the greatest math wiz, there are a lot of math on the test and it's time based so..

Well, what is 43-8?

Now, you might say 35.

But, the correct answer is...BLOWOUT! :thisbig:

Only proves he wasn't born breaking down defenses. I bet if he took it today, he'd score at least a 29.

30 - and guessed at most of the math ones as I did not have pencil and paper.

Doesn't say to much for those who have a "college" education and cannot score at least the same. I only had a year of junior college - many, many, many years ago

i got a 20 (out of 22 i think) while eating dinner. this isnt a test for me though, i re-read everything and double check my math, speed is not my forte anymore. with that being said and as much as my mind has deteriorated since school, it would give me pause as a coach if a player couldnt hit at least 20-25 at the peak of their education.
