    Morris Claiborne scores a 4 on Wonderlic, worst since 2000



    In my opinion, Claiborne is the best defensive player in this draft and played very well in a very complex system at LSU.




    Weird.




    How can you score a 4 on this test and pass classes in college?




    Former LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, the highest rated cornerback in the NFL draft, scored a 4 out of 50 on the Wonderlic Test administered to prospects at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, sources confirmed to ESPN.




    Pro Football Talk first reported Claiborne's test score.




    Claiborne's score is the lowest known result by a draft prospect since Iowa State running back Darren Davis reportedly received a 4 in 2000. In 2006, quarterback Vince Young, who was the third overall pick by the Tennessee Titans, reportedly scored a 6 on his initial test before retaking it and getting a 16. Quarterback Dan Marino also scored a 16 and went on to a Hall of Fame career with the Miami Dolphins.

    Claiborne could slip on draft day due to this.




    Could he slip into the 20s? Would the Giants be interested?

    No way he falls just because he scored low on his Wonderlic Test. He has far too much talent for a team to discredit him.




    I never cared how smart these players are, if they can grasp a playbook and have talent that's all you need. These guys aren't running fortune 500 businesses. There playing a game...


    Giants fan since the early 80s

    [/quote]Marino was known for a strong arm but not for making good decisions with the ball. He and Favre were better known for trying to make an impossible pass and ending up with an interception. Regarding how a player can score 4 on the test and pass classes in colliege he is a star player at LSU. Enough said.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    He might slip a tad ... but most likely not out of the Top 10.

    The Wonderlic test doesn't seem to be as big a deal as it used to be as an NFL measurable and CB is almost a purely athletic position.

    Wow, just read that Patrick Peterson got a 5... Those LSU boys aren't that smart huh? No wonder the SEC needs to pay there players to go there and pay off their professors to keep them playing. CWeb at least got a 12.
