    Scores out of 50
    Bradford 36
    McCoy 25
    Clausen 23
    Tebow 22

    I have no idea what this means other than the higher the score, the smarter the prospect. Do you think the Wonderlic test is important?

    In past Wonderlic tests, Rivers scored a 30, Eli Manning 39, Tony Romo 37, Peyton Manning 28, Ryan Leaf 27, Vince Young 15.

    I wouldn't call a 22 a bomb when Young got a 15 and i've heard of players scoring single digits on that thing

    Wonderlic means nothing; someone else of note also scored a 22:

    Brett Favre - 22

    And others of note:

    Donovan McNabb - 14
    David Garrard - 14
    Dan Marino - 16
    Chad Pennington - 25 (he is supposedly very intelligent)
    Michael Vick - 20

    22 isnt a bomb :lol:

    20 is an average score so he did fine. And no, i dont think it is real important as long as they pass the test when they have them going over defenses on tape with them. I dont think the wonderlic relates much to football.

    Ryan Leaf got a 27 and Peyton got a 28. You think it mattered there? Peyton has a good work ethic and Leaf dont. Thats what matters!!

    I honestly dont put much into the wonderlic test scores.

    I mean, is a player going to study for a game the same way they study for the wonderlic.

    What I would like to see is how the QBs who run the no huddle, and have to make snap desicions score. Paidaton got a 28... I wonder what Jim Kelley got...

    There is book smarts, street smarts, and field smarts. Some people dont have equal shares of the 3...

    *Waiting to be told I have no shares of any*
