    I think we make too much of this wonderlic test. It's not like the guys that score perfect or near perfect go on to transcend the league or anything. Seems to me that Claiborne is good enough to cover a receiver. That's all any team will probably be worried about.
    If she carried a 4.0 GPA, I'd say she usually did pretty well on tests.

    Nah, most schools now will give extra test time to students who need it.

    Is that a good thing or bad thing?

    In fact, the lower a TE or CB scores on the Wonderlick, the better he performs on the field, so this might actually increase Claiborne's draft value.

    This is from the ESPN article...
    I don't know about tight ends but it makes sense for a DB in a way. After all you want a DB to react rather than think. If he thinks he's mostly likely gonna get burnt.

    Is the current suggestion that there are no intelligent (relatively speaking) CBs in the NFL who play well?

    You would think.

    Many courses base their mark strictlyon papers though, without holding any tests or exams, so I suppose one can "studiously" avoid them.

    Most of my undergrad courses were like that, in fact.

    Miraculously, I did surprisingly well in the LSAT - which, back then, was a 6 hour exam - enough to help get me into a top law school.

    Even though I had a knot in my gut the whole time, and I left there thinking I'd blown it...

    Hard to say what happened with Claiborne, especially after reading the various opinions in these posts...

    I would venture to say it is a learning disability with regard to his reading. But who knows? If he truly is a good kid like what I've read I wish him the best and hope he can find some help for any LD he may have. Because lord knows he'll be able to afford it.

    Just a thought but could his disability be credited to any head trauma from hits? We've seen the recent cases of football players that have major head issues.
