    I got 8 out of 9, I don't care how September is close to whatever....I do know that if they had a wonderlich on football only, Vince Young would have been a Rhodes Scholar.

    Nineteen, actually.

    It's never good when the yards you give up due to penalties as a fourth year pro is still more than four times your wonderlic score.

    I think it mainly comes into play in terms of how well they can digest a playbook or read an opposing offense/defense. The idea would be that some players can make logical connections that because player A is doing this, he must be blitzing or it seems like everytime player B lines up on that side, it's a strongside run. The idea is to see where you can think through a situation under severe time constraints. To me, it's about as useful as a player's numbers on the 20-yard shuffle. Just another tool to measure guys by. Some positions require better ability to read and react than others, though.
