    C.J. Spiller-RB- Player Mar. 15 - 4:09 pm et

    Clemson RB C.J. Spiller scored an underwhelming 10 on the Wonderlic Test at the Scouting Combine.

    The score means next to nothing for a tailback, but Spiller's was the worst at his position. Stanford's Toby Gerhart unsurprisingly led the group with a 30. Other notable RB scores: Cal's Jahvid Best (24), Oregon's LeGarrette Blount (16), Mississippi State's Anthony Dixon (25), Fresno's Ryan Mathews (16).

    Eric Decker-WR- Player Mar. 15 - 3:37 pm et

    Minnesota WR Eric Decker reportedly had the best Wonderlic score of any player at February's Combine, getting 43-of-50 questions correct.

    Decker couldn't run coming off Lisfranc surgery, so he tore up the written test instead. While intelligence won't suddenly make him healthy or a better prospect, he at least managed to capitalize on what he was able to do.

    Jason Worilds-DL- Player Mar. 15 - 2:22 pm et

    Virginia Tech DE Jason Worilds registered the best 10-yard split among pass rushers Combine, timing in at 1.58 seconds.

    2009 Defensive Rookie of the Year finalist Clay Matthews had the best 10-yard split (the first 10 yards of the forty-yard dash) at last February's Combine. Other 2010 draft-eligibles with strong split times included Jerry Hughes of TCU and Clemson's Ricky Sapp, who tied behind Worilds at 1.59 seconds.

    Sergio Kindle-LB- Player Mar. 15 - 2:28 pm et

    Texas OLB/DE Sergio Kindle registered an unimpressive 10-yard split at the Combine at 1.65 seconds.

    Some scouts reportedly had Kindle at 1.70 seconds. Kindle's forty time (in the 4.65-4.71 range) was impressive, but he doesn't have as much initial burst as some other elite draft-eligible rushers. The 10-yard split is a pretty well proven test of explosiveness, so Kindle's slow time may hurt him.

    Chad Jones-DB- Player Mar. 15 - 3:20 pm et

    LSU S Chad Jones managed just 11 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press at the Tigers' Monday Pro Day.

    He only had nine reps at last month's Scouting Combine. Jones does have relatively long arms for a safety (32 1/2 inches), but at a linebacker-like, 6-foot-2 and 221 pounds, you'd think he'd be able to do quite a few more.
