It makes you think he got through school by playing football only in which case the teachers shouldn't allow that. Where's the education these days?

i think it is more applicable to offensive lineman than anyone else
(and yes, i discount qb's as well. lot of high scoring qb's on the wonderlic that didnt do squat)
i think the real issue here is this: who is leaking the results? that's just morally wrong.
honestly, there was a player, who said anonymously, that the wonderlic is not taken seriously by players, and some just dont bother even reading the questions. i dont think it's an indictment of the school system and teaching, but rather a statement these the guys that know they will be playing in the nfl dont bother much with the test, and perhaps - maybe - school in general

I would have to say it wouldn't hurt his football abilities but c'mon man. Have some pride in yourself.

Everybody else has to worry about education just to get a crappy job. These guys are going to make millions. I say it would be completely fair to make these guys have to pass a certain score or their not eligible. The nfl already has plenty of dumbasses in the league ruining their careers with drugs and things. We don't need any more.

Please don't equate a lack of intelligence with a lack of judgement, it doesn't reflect well on you. The test clearly has nothing to do with success in the NFL, so a minimum score requirement would be completely stupid. Since the average for a regular person is about 21, what would you make the minimum? 15? That is almost 30% worse than the average person and also means Dan Marino would never have played in the NFL. Of all the combine hoops to jump through, the Wonderlic is the least useful. It still serves a purpose, but it needs to be taken in the correct context.
