Tavon Austin Wonderlic score: 7

My Wonderlic test for WRs:


Can you catch football?

Can you run with football?

Can you run in a specific pattern/route?

Can you grab the guy in front of you and put yourself between him and the ball-carrier at times?


If the answer is yes to all of these, that is good enough for me.

I haven't but I am a natural test taker.

Sure there could have been any number of factors that gave him a bad score. But this is supposed to be a guy in college...
[/quote]they have learning centers in college and arrangements can be made to take the tests there in less intimidating surroundings for people who have learning disabilities.

also, if he did well enough to get by in college it would probably be a lot more stressful being in that situation at the combine.

[/quote]ask them about their playbook. give them gruden QB camp type questions about certain plays. you know...relevant stuff.

giving them a mini SAT is silly.

I worked with a client company who were looking to acquire another company. They investigated the average weight of employees and whether people parked nose in or nose out.

Every data point is considered.

Nobody is saying it is going to be the driver on draft day but if a team is waffling on a player, a wonderlich score could be the final data point that makes the decision go one way or the other. Or that combined with other similar points.

I'm sure some teams that run more complex playbooks put more weight in this.

Thats the issues with most companies today. They look at the data and not the person.

not a big deal. if you aren't stupid when you enter the NFL, you are certainly going to be stupid by the time you exit after years of getting hit.

WVU. I'm not even sure the regular students would do much better than a 7.

That test is pretty damn easy. They aren't asking advanced calculus or anything, the questions are very basic. A 7 means you're drooling on yourself and can't figure out how to open a childproof bottle of medicine. Kudos to West Virginia University for the great education and high admission standards.
