    I've known people that couldn't read that were smart but I wouldn't expect them to learn a playbook.

    Took it without reading the questions and picking "c or b" every time and got a 9 :)

    In all honesty, how the hell does someone get a 4 on this test...

    Morris Claiborne: I blew off Wonderlic

    By Tim MacMahon | ESPNDallas.com
    Updated: April 27, 2012, 9:11 PM ET

    IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys first-round draft pick Morris Claiborne said he pretty much blew off the Wonderlic test at the NFL scouting combine, resulting in what has been reported as a single-digit score.

    The former LSU defensive back, selected sixth overall Thursday night, told reporters that he didn't take the test seriously.

    "I mean, I looked on the test and wasn't nothing on the test that came with football, so I pretty much blew the test off," Claiborne said.

    Claiborne reportedly had a score of 4, the lowest reported score in a dozen years. The average score for NFL prospects is 21.

    When asked Thursday if he regretted not taking the test more seriously, Claiborne said he did.

    "If I knew there was going to be this much heat about it ... Yeah," Claiborne said.

    Not trying to be cynical, but I doubt everyone in this thread has a genius level intellect...there have been two players in the history of the NFL who have even sniffed a perfect score and both were Harvard graduates.

    Keep in mind, I don't believe that they get to use a calculator on the wonderlic; just a pencil and paper. I'm sure we're all smart people...but let's keep both our results and this test in perspective.

    I agree. Everybody on CowboysZone happened to score a plus-45. I started taking the test but stopped because my WiFi was slow and the time was winding down faster than my connection could handle. Anyway, I got about 15 questions in. It wasn't difficult but it wasn't as easy as people are making it sound. A lot of it required multiple-step calculations (in your head) and knowledge of definitions of obscure words. And you only have 14 seconds per question. I could probably get a perfect 50 with a calculator, dictionary and an extra 5 minutes.

    Thats pretty tough to answer 50 questions in 12 minutes. I took it and got a 25, but only was able to answer 30 questions.

    27 here -- which the site told me was the same as Joe Flacco.

    I was unable to complete the test -- I found it more difficult than I imagined.

    And let's make a rule: Any body here who posts lower than Vince Young needs to leaf the Forum forever.

    I too didn't finish. Got 38 question done. Scored a 30, same a Phillips Rivers.

    Funny, I always thought Rivers was a dummy. :)

    Disclaimer: This is not a Wonderlic test and the scores derived from it may not accurately reflect the score you would attain on the Wonderlic test.

    So this isn't even the Wonderlic Test. I tried it without pencil and paper and ran out of time after about 35-40 questions. I don't think it's the same as the Wonderlic and looks more like a regular IQ Test.
