Default 2009 Wonderlic scores

I am one of those people who thinks that the wonderlic is a good measuring tool for certain skills at certain positions.... While it is not the only ruler for measuring football potential...it is certainly a good gauge in factoring how well a player can learn a playbook...or tie their shoes.

This year had some standouts and some...well..."challenged" individuals.

Matt Stafford scored a 38 which obviously boosts his stock.
USC's Mark Sanchez scored a 28
Kansas State's Josh Freeman a 27
(A 28 is about average for QBs)

Jeremy Maclin of Missouri scored a 25
Michael Crabtree of Texas Tech scored a 15
Darrius Heyward-Bey of Maryland scored a 14
Percy Harvin of Florida scored a 12
Hakeem Nicks of UNC scored an 11
(A score of 10 suggests a person is literate)

Arizona's Eben Britton scored a 31
Virginia's Eugene Monroe scored a 24
Baylor's Jason Smith scored a 23
Andre Smith continued his epic draft stock slide by posting a 17.

Rey Maualuga scored a 15 (so much for being a defensive captain)
USC's Clay Matthews - 27
USC's Brian Cushing - 23

Highest score this year was defensive back Kevin Barnes, who scored a 41.

By the way, Pat McInally, a graduate of Harvard University is the only football player to record a confirmed perfect score of 50....the lowest score ever on the Wonderlic came courtesy of Darren Davis, a running back from Iowa State who scored a 4.

By the way, here are some other interesting QB scores from over the years.

Michael Vick - 20
Marcus Vick - 11
Steve Young - 33
Drew Brees - 28
Tom Brady - 33
Chad Pennington - 25
Drew Bledsoe - 37
Donovan McNabb - 14
David Garrard - 14
Dan Marino - 16
Eli Manning - 39
Jeff George - 10
Vince Young - allegedly got a 6, then retested and got a 15
Chris Leak - 8
John Elway - 30
Brett Favre - 22

I could care less about the high scores. I think the wonderlic is kind of jokey, and suspect most of the players do to, and want to be assessed on their athletic prowess.

Harvin and Nicks scoring that low is a concern, but neither are on the Steelers radar (at least I don't THINK either is).

How about Laurinaitis? Donald Washington? Marcus Freeman?

These are the ones that I could find that were "leaked"...

In regards to the validity of the test...I think it tells us "some things" but is by no means the end all....for instance, I am pretty sure that Alex Smith scored about 20 points higher than Dan Marino!!

Must have copied off of Vince Young...and was deducted 2 point for actually writing the name "Vince Young" on his test instead of his own,

obv the scores don't tell the story of the players.. but it is sad that players could score under 10 or around 10..

im impressed with andre smiths 17. he is a classic "baby huey". hearing him speak, you can just tell he is like a 15 year old trapped in a young mans body. if he matures before getting spoiled by all the $$$$, watch out!

he is a perfect bungles pick.
