Someone verify this for me but I think Chris Gamble scored a 6 or something on the Wonderlic.

When the Carolina Panthers drafted Chris Gamble back in 2004, there were reports that the cornerback also had a low Wonderlic score. The Panthers did their homework on Gamble and drafted him. It’s worked out pretty well. Gamble’s been starting for the last eight seasons and has 27 career interceptions.


You don't need to be able to set the world on fire to swat a ball out of the air.

a learning disability implies that there is a desire/want to learn. I'm thinking he just doesnt care. his plan was to goto the NFL, not become an engineer. So lets call it what it is, laziness. And you guys want this guy? Pass.


what? i think u like dildos, and you think anyone cares about your opinion? pass.

Let's be honest here, guys. If it weren't for his football ability, dude would not be at LSU. Period. End of story.

It's why I understand the legitimate gripe parents have with certain schools and the NCAA. Their child is a responsible student. They work hard in high school to make good grades and maybe even earn an academic scholarship. They get denied from their school of choice but some idiot who can throw a football 70 yards or run really fast gets a free ride to the same school.

Then these same "student athletes" with the reading level of a 7th grader get kicked out of school for robbing a fellow student or doing drugs. Or they leave for pro sports in a season.

"Student-athletes" - LOL. Yeah. right.

wait, wasn't he going to an SEC school? please clarify "higher education"


If by 'going to an SEC school' you mean he attended parties there and banged coeds, then yes, he went to an SEC school.

Yup.

The SEC is the cash cow of ESPN, the NFL, and the NCAA. College football is probably the second most popular sport in the USA and brings in billions of dollars for the three I mentioned above.

Why do you think that academic/recruiting/legal issues & scandals are always an open and shut case with the SEC? Money talks!

I mean it took a month to close the Cam Newton case and find everyone innocent of any wrong doing when there was significant evidence of infractions. The NCAA finally dropped the hammer on the tar heels after two years and even Ohio State got a long ass investigation.

love Cam as a panther, but come on. I'm not saying he was guilty but when there is smoke there is fire.

don't think Chris Gamble had a learning disability

Frank Gore is dyslexic and scored a 6 on the wonderlic. Also they say that scouts actually think it's a red flag if a corner has a high wonderlic score because that means they might overthink too much. also check out this link

http://espn.go.com/c...ed-4-wonderlic-sources-say

A 2009 study by professors from Fresno State University, the University of Georgia and Towson State found no connection between Wonderlic scores and performance during the first three years of a player's NFL career. The group studied 762 players from the 2002, 2003 and 2004 draft classes.

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."
