Default Re: Interesting stats on Wonderlic Test

the Morris Claiborne one is misleading, supposedly he answered the first question and then walked out on the test

I'm not sure why he did that though...

I think I scored a 36 last one I took.

It would be funny if they put this in the NBA because Westbrook would score in the top 1% of the league and make everyone look like dipshits.

He finished in the top percentile in his HS class and chose UCLA strictly for Academics.

do football players know about this test and prep for it by now?

My bet is they do which would be a giant advantage.

wow, just noticed the huge racial divide between the top scores and worst scorers...

all of the worst scores are black...all of the top scores are white with the exception of Ben Watson and Calvin Johnson

Kaepernick is half black/white but raised by a white couple
