Have you ever failed a test? I’m guessing that if you spend your time reading The Sports Dump, you probably have. But if you can read this blog at all, I bet you haven’t done as poorly as LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne did on the Wonderlic this offseason. Claiborne scored a four on what amounts to a basic cognitive ability test. That’s a FOUR……….out of FIFTY!
You would think that someone who could manage to pass classes at Louisiana State University would be able to score better than a four on an intelligence test. I mean, that underwater basket weaving major surely would have prepared him for tests like these, right?
Seriously, how did he not fail out of school? Those LSU tutors must be something else!
Granted, a high Wonderlic score is not necessarily an indicator of NFL success. Vince Young scored a six, before getting a 14 on his second try. Steve McNair got a 15, and look where he ended up. Sebastion Janikowski got a nine, and teammates call him “Sea Bass.” Now, that’s one smart fish.
Interesting Fact: Jamarcus Russell scored higher than Dan Marino, Jim Kelly, Brett Favre, Terry Bradshaw, and of course, Tim Tebow.
Final Thought: Morris Claiborne will be a mulit-millionaire in just a few short months. I only wish I was could be that dumb.
