You may remember that Morris Claiborne set the Internet on fire when Pro Football Talk reported he scored a 4 out of 50 on his Wonderlic Test at the NFL Combine. Well Thursday night, Claiborne told his side of the story (via USA Today):
"I looked at the test, and wasn't any questions about football. I didn't see no point in the test. I'm not in school anymore. I didn't complete it. I only finished 15 or 18 questions."
That is AWESOME. There's something pretty disturbing about the Wonderlic, in general -- where college-aged kids take confidential IQ tests and if any of them struggle, their scores inevitably become public within 72 hours of the combine, sportswriters make jokes for years, and on and on.
So yeah, a top 10 player saying "I'm not in school anymore," and walking away is pretty much the most ballinest response to the Wonderlic in the history of the NFL combine. IQ aside, Claiborne's clearly got the swagger you're looking for in a shutdown corner. He went 6th overall to Dallas on Thursday.
