    I have taken Wonderlic sample questions and there is absolutely no excuse to get a four. And I'm 16 years old.

    Before you start crossing guys off our board, Asante Samuel got a 10 when he took it in 2003.

    And now he's proving it by screwing up his career with talk about a hold out.

    A four ?? Wow. Like Hollywood Henerson said about Terry Bradshaw, "He's so dumb, he couldn't spell CAT if you spotted him the C & the T". Funny line, and applies to anyone who get's a 4.

    Speaking of Jared Zabransky, I think if we could get him in the sixth he could make a very good 3rd QB.

    I like Zabransky, but I'd try to convert him to RB or S, very good change of direction times and 4.5 speed.

    Well, if he's that smart, he can learn all those positions. :)

    More importantly, though. . . . can he hold or long snap?

    When I created that Mock I posted awhile back I thought about giving Zabransky to the Patriots. As you said, he can also play other positions, and he just seems like the type of player BB would like.

    IMO having a third QB who can be a back up in other positions as well is great value.

    Laurence Maroney 5'11 7/8" 217 4.48 at his Pro-day.

    Jared Zabransky 6'2 1/8" 219 4.56 at the Combine.
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.08
    3-Cone Drill: 6.78

    He could try WR, but he "[r]ushed for 189 yards and six touchdowns." He could handle the halfback option better from halfback.

    This jives with some of the leaked scores I've been collecting.

    FWIW, don't be surprised to see 2. Anthony Pudewell, TE, Nevada (39) wearing a Pats uni.

    Thanks for posting the list.

    Frank Gore scored a pathetic 6 and is building a very nice career. Of course RB isn't the most cerebral position.

    QB is the most cerebral position and Vince Young, despite his lacklustre wonderlic score, is doing fine. Never read too much into the wonderlic... Kerry Collins scored a 30 (QB average is 23) and that didn't help him out too much later down the road. I'm not sure if the emphasis of the wonderlic is on street smarts or football smarts. Some guys just can't translate their on-field skills to interviews and quizzes.

    The difference between an IQ test and the SAT:

    An IQ test will have an everyday sentence with a made up word in it. The question will ask you what the word might mean.

    The SAT gives you a real word and asks you to define it.

    Intelligence is different than knowledge.

    Zabronsky (sp?) seems like a jack of all, master of none. He worked out with the receivers at the combine, and I believe he was recruited as a safety (who played QB in HS). Seems like he's a great guy and a great baller. But where and at what capacity?

    He's pure intrigue, and at the NFL level, his future is at the mercy of a coach with the vision and talent to make him a true NFL player.

    You're welcome, and on Pudewell, wouldn't surprise me either, since he plays the position B/P have drafted the most in the past 5 seasons.

    Top Ten: 7 of 10 white

    Bottom Ten: 10 of 10 black

    Did you expect anything else? Not sure why this is "shark-infested waters"... seems like common knowledge to me.

    In NFL... 8-5 record as a starter

    In college... 30-2 record as a starter

    I actually made an error. VY is doing more than "just fine."

    It doesn't, but why should it be off-limits?

    I didn't say it should be off limits... but I'm wondering what is the relevance of it to choosing the right player?

    It does matter,that's why I had the courage to bring it up,all-knowing I would be vilified for doing so.

    It's important that these things become part of society's dialogue.......not two societies....separate,
    but equal.

    When they are swept under the rug and left to the
    imagination,without discussion......those are the "silent" questions that destroy society.

    So,fire away.....just don't be silent or submissive.

    Do NOT be surprised when the Pats choose Justin Blalock in Round 1.

    Smart, can run and is an absolute BEAST! Sounds like Patriot material.
