Stafford is a smart kid. Charley Casserly commented on the Wonderlic test on NFL network. He said that its just a tool and if guys are poor on it, they will do further investigation into their intelligence. He added most teams have guys work on their own tests and drawing things up on the chalkboard to determine their..............football IQ.

Notable Wonderlic scores:

Drew Henson-42
Alex Smith-40
Eli Manning-39
Joey Harrington-32
Patrick Ramsey-32
Carson Palmer 26
Akili Smith-25
Ben Roethilisberger-25
Brett Favre-22

I cant honestly remember, but I think there is a fractional deduction for wrong answers on the Wonderlic, so you get penalized for guessing wrong. Still, a highschool graduate should be able to get the first 3 series of questions without breaking a sweat and score a 15.
I'm almost positive that this was the case. I don't think it's as prevalent as it once was, but I have no doubt in my mind that some of the bigger programs still have a "pass-through" program for their superstar athletes...

I thought that only happened at "State Schools".

Hey, being a buckeye fan, what do you think of Alex Boone as a RT prospect?? Nader Abdallah as a DE prospect in a 3-4?

Boone is significantly better at RT than he would be at LT. I believe that's where he played two years ago. Nader Abdallah might be decent as a 3-4 DE...I would guess the RDE would be a better spot from him than the LDE.
