    They stopped releasing Wonderlic scores after the Vince Young fiasco where he was severly embarrassed by his results.

    WTF? :confused: That's ridiculous! What's next they stop releasing 40 times for CBs? Afterall this year's crop should be pretty embarrassed.

    It's annoying for draftniks, but I think it's the right thing to do. Think of it this way: hundreds of young men are invited to the combine, and many will be out of football a year from now. As they head into the world to find jobs, their 10/20 splits won't matter a whit. But a public airing of a crappy IQ score could haunt them.

    It shouldn't, because as someone astutely noted, they take the Wonderlic after they go through their workouts, which means they're not only trying to "demonstrate" their "intelligence", but they're also doing it while hopped up on adrenaline.

    That said, I would do it sort of the way Jeopardy! does with their auditions--say, give the names only for the top 5 scores at each position.

    I like that compromise.
