Last year the media built up Rodgers in order to create hype surrounding the #1 pick. I think everyone honestly knew that Smith was the clear #1 QB and QB was the #1 need for the 49er's. This year there is Vince Young, a great college QB who ended his college career on the highest of highs. But is he a top ten, even first round, talent. Watching him a few game (including his finalle) I don't think so. I think he is the typical college talent who won't be able to adjust to the pro game. Every time that I saw him pressured he immediately tucked the ball and ran. I never once saw him scramble and look downfield at the same time. Also I think his accuracy is lacking, not to mention his throwing motion.
I admit that I fell for this for a short time. I even started a post on why he could be the #1 overall pick.

That Wonderlic stuff is way over-rated. Just imagine BB starting a conversation with a potential draftee like this: "A train leaves New York at 4:00 pm traveling at 45 MPH..."
The questions need to be tailored to the job. A better test would involve something like "You've called play X. Before the snap the FS is here and the SS is there and after the TE goes in motion X, Y, and Z happen, where's your first read?"
Oh and while I never took the Wonderlic, I did pretty good on the SAT, so I got nothing against standardized tests, and I can see their value as a useful way of evaluating lots of people very cheaply; but a potential 1st rounder needs a much better evaluation than a written test can provide.
Vince Young did NOT score a 6 on the Wonderlic. He scored a 16. The 6 was a mis-scored test and thrown out.
There's actually some debate about it. Some think it was a League cover-up to pacify Vince, his agents, and Mack Brown for leaking his score. These people say that scoring tests are so easy (you simply add the number of questions answered right) that a chimp could grade them, and there's never been a case of someone screwing up the scoring before.
In any case, his agent has admitted that he told Vince not to bother preparing for it. I'm sure when he retakes the test he'll score in the 19-24 range.
