    After doing a little research I found out alot of players had some unusual scores, meaning that some succesful players scored lower than some non-succesful players in this league.

    Here are some of the more notable ones, though:

    Drew Henson - 42, Alex Smith - 40, Eli Manning - 39, Tom Brady - 33, Steve Young - 33, John Elway - 30, Troy Aikman - 29, David Carr - 24, Brett Favre - 22, Michael Vick - 20, Dan Marino - 16, Jeff George - 10

    Poking around I find that the Wonderlic company says a score under 10 means that the person will likely struggle with the job responsibilities. However, it does not mean that they can't learn. It's more along the lines of they can't learn by reading as well as they learn by non-reading methods.

    Also, the Wonderlic personnel test is given by all kinds of companies, not just by the NFL. Several million people take the wonderlic test evey year. Wonderlic says a perfect score is seen about 1 out of 30,000 tests.

    In the NFL, Wonderlic test scores seem to be higher based on how close you are to the ball. Offensive line has the highest average scores. Tackles average wonderlic score is 26, centers are 25, quarterbacks average 24 on the wonderlic. Guards & TE's are next at 23 & 22.

    On the defense, safties & MLB's are tops at 19. I read a couple interviews where the speculation was that you don't want your corners to be too analytical. If they get burned, you don't want them overanalyzing, you want them to get out there & make the next play.

    With Marino scoring a 16 and Henson scoring a 42, I'd say Vince Young doesn't have much to worry about.

    I hope everyone gets the thought that we might draft VY out of their head....
    We're not going to trade up to get him
    we're not going to draft him even if he drops to 18
    let's not talk about VY anymore...

    There should be a "Dead Horse" Zone.

    Has anyone who ever scored a 6 even played in the league?

    I hope the Cowboys aren't the first to draft a 6.

    To think Michael Bishop is substantially smarter the VY/6 is freaky. :):lmao2:

    If Vince Young threads bother you so much, you need simply to NOT click on them.


    It's not that hard.

    VY scored a 16, not a 6.


    But to answer your question, yes I believe Frank Gore scored a 6 last year and he did ok with the niners.
