Default Wonderlic Test Scores.......

The official scores from the Wonderlic Tests taken at the combine were released. As usual, there were some interesting results. Texas QB Vince Young did indeed take the test twice. The league has been tight-lipped regarding his first score, but the higher score of his two attempts was a 15. Young's score was bad, but not the worst of this year's quarterback class. That honor goes to Virginia Tech's Marcus Vick, who scored an 11 on the test.

A perfect score is 50, and the highest score any player posted in this year's class was a 41 (Oklahoma DT Dusty Dvoracek). The lowest score of this year's class was an eight (Syracuse DE Kader Drame, Alabama ILB Freddie Roach, Louisville DT Montavious Stanley, N.C. State TE T.J. Williams and Oklahoma DC Chijioke Onyenegecha), and the average score of all the quarterbacks was a 24.6.

The Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT) is a short-form intelligence test that measures players' ability to think on their feet, follow directions and make effective decisions under pressure. While Young and Vick exposed their weaknesses in those areas, other quarterbacks shined. Grambling's Bruce Eugene (41), Montana State's Travis Lulay (37), USC's Matt Leinart (35) and Oregon's Kellen Clemens (35) all posted impressive scores.

Prospects at other positions who excelled include Ohio State OC Nick Mangold (35), Tulsa TE/FB Garrett Mills (35), Oregon LB Keith Ellison (36), Cal-Poly State DE Chris Gocong (36), Cornell OL Kevin Boothe (37), Virginia WR Marques Hagans (37), Stanford DT Babatunde Oshinowo (37) and Boston College OT Jeremy Trueblood (37).

Others didn't fare so well, such as Penn State DC Alan Zemaitis (9), Marshall DC Chris Hawkins (10), Miami DE Javon Nanton (10), South Carolina DS Ko Simpson (10), Central Missouri State WR Delanie Walker (10), Syracuse DE James Wyche (10), LSU WR/RS Skyler Green (11), Tennessee DB Jason Allen (11), Clemson DE Charles Bennett (11), Abilene Christian DB Danieal Manning (12), Texas Tech DS Dwayne Slay (12), South Florida RB Andre Hall (13), Pittsburgh DC Josh Lay (13), UCLA TE Marcedes Lewis (13), Mississippi State RB Jerious Norwood (13) and Tarleton State RB Derrick Ross (13).

Some teams put more stock into this test than others, but I'll say just this.

After 4 years of college, a legitimate graduating student should at least be able to get a 20 on this test. If they can't, I have serious questions about whether that player actually attended any classes, or took their own tests. That's more of a condemnation of the whole 1-A Football machine mentality that's in place than anything the NFL is doing.

You do have to wonder about this test, though. Matt Mauck scored a 16 on the Wonderlic, but he easily passed the entrance exam for dental school.

Brandon Jacobs (the Auburn RB who transferred to Southern Illinois) scored a 20. He's so dumb his teammates called him "Radio".

I'm at a loss to explain those two results.
I agree!!
You might have a player who according to the Wonderlic Test classifies as a Mental Midget but when he gets on the field things click for him and he has that athletic sense of how to play great football at his position.

I'm glad to see that the old stereotype of football players being a bunch of oversized dummies can finally be laid to rest.
Oh...wait a minute...high score is a 50....score one for stereotypes!

This is a stupid question, but i gotta ask. In Madden 06 before the draft, you take a test to determine how you think on your feet blah, blah, blah. Is it at all like the Wonderlic test?

Probably, since the wonderlic is supposed to be a test about how fast you can process information, and your ability to learn new stuff.
