Could Vince Young Have Misspelled His Name on the SAT?


In a 2001 issue of Sports Illustrated, columnist Rick Reilly broke down the Wonderlic test in a way that even NFL players would be able to comprehend.

“Anytime your Wonderlic approaches your cleat size, it's not good.”

Former Texas quarterback and future first round pick Vince Young only wishes his score was that high.

The Wonderlic test is a 12 minute 50 question multiple choice test that teams and even major companies use to examine the fundamental intelligence of a player or job applicant. The questions range from matching similar names to knowing the months of the year in order.

The average NFL player tested scores a 19. As inconceivable as it may seem, it is believed that Young got a 6.

To put this in perspective, according to one website, only six quarterbacks have ever recorded an 11 or under. Young tied Oscar Davenport from North Carolina for the lowest QB score on the list.

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to watch any of NFL combine on TV but if they don’t show the players taking the Wonderlic, they need to start. How amusing must have it been to be in the same room with all of the test takers? Do they all take it in the same room?

Imagine hundreds of big oafs who probably haven’t taken a real test since the ninth grade trying to cheat off of the one or two Ivy Leaguer’s in the room.

Now that’s television.

Take a sample test, it’s fun as hell. (Question 5 is a doozy.)

I GOT AN 8 ON THE smarter than the average NFL prospect.
