Morris Claiborne's Wonderlic Score Was Reportedly A 4

At the NFL Combine in February, NFL draft prospects take the Wonderlic Test, which consists of 50 questions to be answered in 12 minutes. It's an aptitude test and every team looks at it differently, with some taking the scores with a grain of salt because they may not necessarily translate to the football field.

That's probably the way Morris Claiborne hopes teams view the test, because he scored a four, reports Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing multiple sources.

Four is even lower than the six Vince Young supposedly scored when he entered the NFL draft.

So what does a low score mean?

It could mean nothing. Plenty of prospects have scored low on the Wonderlic only to go on and dominate at the NFL level. Wonderlic intelligence and football intelligence aren't necessarily the same thing.

It could also scare a few teams who were considering Claiborne, who is expected to be a top 10 pick. Some might view it as a sign of longterm issues in understanding the playbook.
