It's simply another information point. For football, it's about as important as knowing whether he wears boxers, briefs, boxer briefs, or goes commando. 

 

If it were me, I'd want to do well in every evaluation, so unlike Richard Sherman, I'd try to ace the Wonderlic. But preparation for it would be like 19th on my list of 20 things to do to get ready for the combine. And if I were an evaluator, it would be 19th out of 20 on my list of things that matter.

I think Gil Brandt used to place a high premium on "mental alertness" for the QB position.  Not sure what that means or if the Wonderlic measures it, but they kind of sound pretty related.

 

If a player does not place a lot of effort into every evaluation, picking and choosing where to work, it does kind of speak to work ethic perhaps.  Not that there aren't priorities, but if a player comes back with the reason that the test just wasn't worth his time or that it don't matter for football, that's kind of telling.

Something less useful than the Wonderlic...   :dunno:

lol I asked that jokingly.  But then I started to think it out, and I couldn't honestly think of anything.  Maybe his college transcript or what he had for breakfast?

Are you sure about that? We don't want our QB to sleep on his throwing arm and shoulder... might lead to injury risks... :dunno:

I agree 100%. It tells me that kid is one smart cookie - smarter to not waste his time on something meaningless than the yoyos who wasted all their time giving the test and selecting their players based on it :D.

 

In addition, if I were a player, I wouldn't want to be on a team whose decision makers picked my teammates based on that thing.

There have been reports of NFL players and even QBs not being able to comprehend certain playbooks.  I don't know if wonderlic necessarily anticipates that, but it probably does that more so for a QB than measuring a 40 yard dash.
