â†µWith the Scouting Combine in the rearview mirror, it's about the right time for Wonderlic scores to start leaking. These are always a big source of controversy and of course one last chance for fans at schools to mock the opposition for being a little slow. This year's first batch of leaked results doesn't provide us anything particularly earth shattering, but here they are via Edgar Thompson of the Palm Beach Post: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥Gators QB Tim Tebow scored a 22 on his Wonderlic, Jimmy Clausen 23, Colt McCoy 25 and Sam Bradford 36 out of 50, per NFL source. â†µâ†µ
â†µI'm sure the immediate reaction goes something like this: "OMG! Tim Tebow is stupid!" Yes, if those scores are correct, he has the lowest of the "name-brand" QBs in this year's draft. Those numbers don't even really touch some of the greats in history. â†µâ†µ
â†µTerry Bradshaw scored 15. Steve McNair and Randall Cunningham also received that score. Donovan McNabb was even worse, scoring a 14. Who has scored a 22 in the past? Tim Couch, Trent Dilfer ... and Brett Favre. If we needed any more proof that Tebow is the new Favre, this seals it right? (OK, probably not.) â†µâ†µ
â†µOn the other side of the coin, Drew Henson scored a 42, Kellen Clemens a 35, and Patrick Ramsey and Joey Harrington both scored 32. The point is that unless Tebow had set some new low watermark for the test, there isn't a lot worth freaking out about. Still, I suspect the results for this thing will be spun a million ways in the coming weeks. â†µâ†µ
