    well that just completely hurts any chance he had of going before the 6th round....

    other wonderlic scores will leak out soon enough.

    What is the scale on the Wonderlic? (min-max range)

    The guy at the NFL Network said Leak had good knowledge of the game. After all, we found out the Wonderlic means nothing for QBs.

    Thanks, MT

    Ew, 8 out of 50... sounds like Raiders material.

    His lack of height is going to hurt him more than his Wonderlic, but I think the guy can play. I just don't know if he will ever start, but I feel he belongs in the NFL, probably as a good backup. It wouldn't shock me if he eventually starts somewhere. QB's throw in lanes anyway, and last time I looked Doug Flutie was no taller and played for years. As to the Wonderlic, VY threw those results into serious question, and others have had low scores and gone on to play well. I am more interested in football intelligence than whether he knows the square root of 168.

    ehh the grading is interesting, 50 is really hard to get, even if you get all the answers right. don't ask me how it works.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick got a 50 and VY got a 6. Don't put much stock into this test.

    It's a timed test. I think they only get like 12 minutes. You go through and answer as many as you can in the alloted time. It starts easy and gets progressively harder. For each correct answer, you score one point. If you score a 6, that simply means he answered 6 correctly within the alloted time. The avg person scores about a 23, and the avg football player is around 20 I do believe. If you score over 40, you are flirting with genius level.

    yeah, i'm sure it's 12 questions in 12 minutes, or something.

    40 would be about "high school graduate" level. Many of the questions should take longer to read than to contemplate an answer.

    well obviously his height is his biggest detractor, but people threw him the "heady intelligent guy" bone as a reason for he being drafted at all. now i'm not sure where he'll go...

    I'd consider myself to be of above average intellect, but I couldn't read a defense to save my life so I won't say Leak can't succeed because he doesn't do well on an intelligence test. I think his stature is his biggest fault.

    I haven't yet seen quite the ruckus raised by the Leak faithful as the VY Lovers showed last year when his score was leaked. The tu spin machine was in full automatic mode when his score was rumored. :secret:

    probably because young was projected top 5 whilst leak isn't even a first day pick.

    You're talking about two different caliber of players...

    that'd be like you scoring low, and someone making a thread about you...
