    Yes, absolutely.

    All I'm saying is that if by no fault of your own, you can't read and process the test, you shouldn't be held to the same standard as those who can.

    Re: Claiborne Scores a 4 on Wonderlic...

    I would rather have Floyd over Claiborne....

    Claiborne isn't an elite athlete at the cornerback position. Peterson was a freak athlete and if you look at the next 5 Cornerbacks taken in last year and this years draft, the goal is to get a good starter....

    Prince, Jimmy Smith, Ras-Dowling., all can play.....this year you have Floyd, Blackmon, Richardson, Kahil and game changers.....

    With the Rams acquisition of Finnegan it allows us to wait on CB and develop the explosiveness of the team that is currently lacking...Claiborne makes more sense for a team with athletic players on defense that can add depth in the secondary.....

    Just say no to Claiborne.....

    Claiborne's coverage skills are light years ahead of Peterson's. True, Peterson is more of a "freak" athlete, but Claiborne's no slouch.

    I consider coverage skills to be a lot more relevant that "freak athleticism." Claiborne was just fantastic in coverage week after week against the top competition in the country. I truly can't see the criticism of the guy. Solid and dependable in both coverage and against the run. It's awfully hard to find anyone saying anything negative about the guy. Everyone is of course entitled to their opinion, but i dont see the argument for taking richardson (when we have jackson) ahead of claiborne if we are blessed with that choice (assuming blackmon is gone since he is my first choice for the rams).

    Ramming speed to all

    If he's got a learning disability, then he relies more on his instincts and great football have great instincts. As long as he can master the type of defense any team plays then he'll do fine in the NFL.

    Go Rams!

    I read one time that 10 meant you could count and read.
    8 was a statistic average if you guessed on all 50 questions without reading or counting.

    a 4 means he has horrific luck guessing or was stuck on a few questions and didn't get very far into the exam. Obviously, LSU coaches were able to educate him on the playbook in a way he understood. Not worried about him at all. His NFL team would just need to get him a tutor probably to walk him through the playbook verbally.

    Re: "Gamechangers"
    DeShaun Jackson is a legitimate GC.

    Vick got the holy shyte beat out of him last year. Philly went nowhere.

    I want a O lineman or Richardson. Either one helps Sam more than a WR.

    In Fisher I trust, and he won't go WR.

    Rep coming. Maybe (IMO), the funniest post I've ever read on ClanRam. Very, very good.
