ESPN.com: Morris Claiborne scored 4 of 50 on Wonderlic test
Former LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, the highest rated cornerback in the NFL draft, scored a 4 out of 50 on the Wonderlic Test administered to prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, sources confirmed to ESPN.
That’s the lowest known score for this intelligence test. But, strangely, this is great news for Morris Claiborne:
John W. Michel, an assistant professor at Towson University who co-authored the study, told the Washington Post: “We found in no cases was cognitive ability related to (football) performance. We did find a negative relationship for tight ends and defensive backs. For defensive backs, it was the most pronounced; basically, the lower you scored on the Wonderlic, the better you performed.”
With a 4, he should probably should have his ticket punched for the NFL hall of fame.
Remember Reinard Wilson from Florida State who played for the Bengals? He scored a 5 and as awesome as he was in college, could not make it on the field in the NFL because he did not understand the basic NFL blitzes.
Yeah, I remember Reinard Wilson. What a waste. He really was only good in college because he played opposite Peter Boulware.
