    A 6??????

    Boy, that Vince Young must be some smart cookie. He scored a whopping 6 on the Wonderlick test.
    Culpepper scored around a 16 to 20 I believe.
    Here's a chart on the average scores by positions and non-NFL people by Paul Zimmerman in "The New Thinking man's Guide to Pro Football."
    Offensive tackles: 26
    Centers: 25
    Quarterbacks: 24
    Guards: 23
    Tight Ends: 22
    Safeties: 19
    Middle linebackers: 19
    Cornerbacks: 18
    Wide receivers: 17
    Fullbacks: 17
    Halfbacks: 16

    The average scores in other professions look like this:

    Chemist: 31
    Programmer: 29
    Newswriter: 26
    Sales: 24
    Bank teller: 22
    Clerical Worker: 21
    Security Guard: 17
    Warehouse: 15

    This surprises me because I would think that QB's would have to be the smartest!

    Trust me, offensive lineman have to absorb just as much football knowledge as quarterbacks. They need to read defenses, make correct blocking audibles, know exactly who/where they have to block on every play. I think Johnathan Ogden got a perfect 50 when he wrote it.

    I don't know much about the wonderlic though, I've heard its stupid measurement of intelligence.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Sorry Singer. I just looked for a thread headline similar to mine and didn't see one. You can meld this thread into that post if you want or someone else.

    I can't do jack Cojomay. I'm not a mod. :grin:

    If I see duplications, I just point them out.

    I think that newswriter is either a misprint of it excluded the (MPLS) sportswriters.

    I wonder what Vick scored, both Marcus and Ron?

    Test given at combine. I don't know much more about it, but it is to test some level of intelligence to see what kind of guys they are drafting.

    Don't worry Cojo, heck, I didn't see it on the 4th page of that thread.

    I have to wonder, doesn't the whole score breakdown there smack in the face of the generally understood pecking order of the smarts on a team? The lineman are always joked at as the buffoons. Look at the Visa commericals with the Patriots.
