    Ricky Stanzi Passes the Critical Wonderlic Test

    http://fantasyfootballmetrics.com/Player_News/2011/NFL%20Draft/Draft_2011_Stanzi%20Wonderlic%20_3-11-11%20%202.0.htm


    BREAKING NEWS:
    Ricky Stanzi Passes the Critical Wonderlic Test, and is Officially Confirmed as our #1 Rated QB for the 2011 NFL Draft
    I have it from a very reliable source that Ricky Stanzi has scored a 30 on his Wonderlic test at the NFL Combine, which is above the critical levels on the Wonderlic test for a College QB. Stanzi scored above the level that most NFL GM's and NFL "War Rooms" consider a key piece of positive background/scouting information for a prospective NFL QB.

    Our statistical analysis/algorithm of the 2011 College QBs rated Ricky Stanzi as the #1 overall QB for this year's NFL Draft (it was a surprise to us too). That lofty/shocking rating for Stanzi was on a data assumption that he would score above our systems critical level of 25 or higher on the Wonderlic. We can confirm with very high confidence that he has surpassed that hurdle with flying colors. *See the original Stanzi research report here -- NFL Draft Picks 2011 - Ricky Stanzi the Best QB in the 2011 NFL Draft? - Fantasy Football 2011

    He is starting to make the rest of the QB's his bitches.....

    Re: Ricky Stanzi Passes the Critical Wonderlic Test

    Stanzi joined a rather exclusive QB list that includes only 14 other QBs of all the ones we have studied (based on advanced passing metrics, strength of competition played, key physical "measureables" and NFL Combine data). These 14 College QB's were ones that had no statistical or physical "red-flag" measurements in any category of our research that we felt were key in projecting them to the NFL based on all of our data history. When you see our list of the 14 QB's names, it will help put Stanzi's high rating for us in context. Here is a clip from our original research report:

    The 14 NFL QBs with no red-flags of 60+ studied in the last decade (and a few outside of the last decade) *in alphabetical order:

    Bradford, Sam
    Brady, Tom
    Elway, John (sketchy, we have yet to be able fully break him down due to some missing data...but of what we have, he has none)
    Flacco, Joe
    Kolb, Kevin
    Leftwich, Byron
    Luck, Andrew
    Manning, Peyton
    Palmer, Carson
    Pike, Tony (may not belong here, we have a sketchy Wonderlic data point we have assumed neutral until we know...but if bad, he would fall off list)
    Pennington, Chad
    Rodgers, Aaron
    Roethlisberger, Ben
    Sanchez, Mark

    He looks good, but of course, this is a highlights real. Even tjoke looks good in those. But Stanzi seems to be able to throw pretty accurately on the run, which could be crucial behind our crummy oline. From what I've seen of him, he looks good. Wouldn't mind taking Tyron Smith or a DE in the first if a good one falls to us and then taking Stanzi/Mallett in the 2nd.

    Greg McElroy stacks up pretty well also when you look at using the same grade schemes

    The "26-27-60" College QB theory

    43-27-66 comparing to Stanzi 30-35-60

    The only QB's of the 5 listed above that are over 6'3 in height/are more prototypical physically for an NFL QB are = Stanzi and Yates
    McElroy is listed from 6'2" 220 lbs or 6'3" 225 lbs??? Guess it varies if he's done his stretching or had a dump that morning :S

    Didn't throw at the combine due to breaking his hand at the Senior Bowl and is a projected 5th rounder but appears to be much smarter than some of the 5 round projected QB's the Vikes moved on as he was a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship

    Re: Ricky Stanzi Passes the Critical Wonderlic Test

    ESPN Insider - Ricky Stanzi

    Ricky Stanzi

    Toughness/Leadership-1

    Resilient and doesn't dwell on mistakes. More concerned with what teammates think of him than what media says about him. Will fight for yards after contact when scrambles.

    Intelligence/Decision Making-4

    Can go through progressions and find the open man but inconsistent in this area. Tries to make too much happen at times. Will lock onto receivers and throw into tight coverage. Appears indecisive at other times. Will throw across body and into traffic when flushed out of the pocket.

    Accuracy-4

    Flashes the ability to hit receivers in stride when throwing underneath and above-average touch when throwing downfield. Is also inconsistent here, though. Sloppy footwork is biggest concern. Fails to set feet and step into throws and doesn't aim front foot at target when following through. Timing is another area of concern. Throws behind too many receivers, will hold onto the ball a quarter-count too long and allow defensive backs to recover in time to make a play on the ball.

    Release/Arm Strength-3

    Bit of wind-up delivery. Arm strength is slightly above-average and can make all the necessary throws to succeed at the NFL level.

    Pocket Mobility-2

    Lacks ideal pocket presence. Doesn't have the innate ability to sense where pressure is coming from when he can't see it. On the other hand, excels at escaping defenders and improvising when the protection starts to break down. Quick feet. Can step up to avoid pressure off the edge and side-step pressure up the middle. Can scramble for first downs when nothing is available downfield.
