Hmmm Rivers was at 30. Payton Manning was at 29 for reference.

If you believe that the Wonderlic shows an idea of the subject's ability to process information and problem solve, then you have to be disappointed if you are a Lamar fan.

There aren't too many QB's that have scored under or around 13 that have had successful careers in the NFL. It's an intellectual game. Not saying he can't do it. But don't sugar coat this, a very terrible score.

I will also add, that there is word out there that his Mom is doing a terrible job as his representation, and that teams aren't even able to schedule meetings with him. Not good Lamar.

Fwiw,

According to Wonderlic Inc. the average score for the test is 20 out of a possible 50. A person who scores an average of 10 and above is considered literate and, therefore, seen by most employers as suitable for less demanding professions. Average test scores can significantly vary between different professions. For instance, an average score for a chemist is set at 31 while that of a cashier is set at 21. These two professions are entirely different, and they need individuals with different abilities to perform these jobs well. For job applicants, scoring well can be extremely important to set yourself apart from others competing for the same position.

Yes, but QB scores always get leaked.

Dan Marino scored a 16 (as did Terry Bradshaw) while Johnny Manziel had the highest score in the 2014 draft class. Here are some scores from the past:

Quote:
Ryan Fitzpatrick (48)

Alex Smith (40)

Eli Manning (39)

Colin Kaepernick (38)

Andrew Luck (37)

Tony Romo (37)

Aaron Rodgers (35)

Tom Brady (33)

JOHNNY MANZIEL (32)

Peyton Manning (28)

Russell Wilson (24)

Robert Griffin III (24)

Tim Tebow (22)

Dan Marino (16)

Here is a much longer list of NFL players:

Terry Bradshaw had one of the lowest scores ever for a successful QB.. I believe he was around 14 or 15. Regardless, he is an outlier and an exception to the rule. Almost everyone that scores that low does not pan out in the NFL. You have to search far and wide to find more QB's like this.

For reference, top prospects Neil O’Donnell (13), Kordell Stewart (14), Donovan McNabb (14) Terry Bradshaw (15) were all quarterbacks to have relatively successful careers despite their lower Wonderlic scores.


On the other hand, could probably come up with a list of a thousand QB's with that type of score that failed to become good players.

HOWEVER, probably almost none of them had Lamar's athletic ability. So this could be a moot point.

He's 3 points higher than the score needed to deem literate. I'll take it.

One of the best lines I have ever heard. Reminds me of Back to School with Rodney Dangerfield when sees his sons C grades he says "what are you talking about, A, B, C you are in the top three!"
