thank goodness for jerry
I sorry you don't believe that because it's the truth. The simple fact it there wasn't anything Mo could have done to improve his draft position. NOTHING. We discuss this every April and probably will as long as he is a Cowboy. It's been documented that this is the truth many times since then. There wasn't millions or draft position riding on the outcome of this test. At this point I wish he would have skipped out on taking the test altogether so this topic wouldn't be brought up each spring.
I don't think players actually "study" for the test. It is suppose to be a general aptitude test. From the web........
Test covers analogies, analysis of geometric figures, arithmetic, direction following, disarranged sentences, judgment, logic, proverb matching, similarities, and word definitions.
"Wonderlic, Inc. claims a score of at least 10 points suggests a person is literate"
Vince Young scored 6 on first take..................you basically have to miss virtually every question to score this low. Apparently to prove he can at least read, either Vince or his agent had him take the test again and he scored 14 on the second try.
You can find a copy of the test online and take it yourself for free and see how you do.
You get 12 mins to answer 50 multiple choice questions over topics like geometry, algebra, sentence structure, word definitions, ect..........basically a mini SAT type general aptitude test.
Roger Staubachs' Wonderlic was a perfect 100% plus X Infinity ... current QB/DT Ben Bass a close 2nd, Matt Jones and David Bueler graded with Honorable mention on Football God status alone.....no Roger isn't in the same sentence with Ben Bass .. DOH!
Manziel led in 40 yard dash times as well?
That's what's hard for me to believe anyone "blew it off". Unless blowing it off means intentionally answering questions incorrectly.
I've taken a few and I've seen "what is the Xth month of the year" on it a couple times.
Its mostly simple addition, identification and general knowledge stuff that you can't really study for because it's so broad.
I don't see much use in using the Wonderlic as a measurement for future success.
A personality exam, much like the ones they give state employees (here in NY) would be much more efficient.
He could his name?
if you passed the wonderlick, you would know what I meant
Is there a team owner's Wonderlic test?
He and Vince Young blamed lack of pre-test studying.
Its not even SAT level, they are not asking calculus questions here, its just basic stuff that almost every college player should know. How Vince Young went to UT and could only score a 6 the first time he took it is beyond believable. He literally had to miss every single question to score that low.
Even if you just bubbled in A all the way down, by the law of averages you would get at least 1 or 2 correct.
I've never understood why people put so much into Wonderlic scores, they are about as worthless as QBR's.
Those are some interesting numbers. I figured Troy would be higher on that list to be quite honest.
Mo has a learning disability. I think that he may be dyslexic. It was written about during his rookie season in OTAs about learning the defense.
Yeah I know about that one too. My guess is that its also dyslexia...its actually more prevalent than people might think.
Correct! My wife is dyslexic, it didn't stop her from being an accountant, and she definitely isn't dumb, but I know for a fact that she struggles with written tests, especially timed ones. You learn techniques to deal with it, but some have it worse than others. So all people that say he is dumb have it wrong in my opinion.
