lol i mean it means something but not enough to drop young down i say he goes no further than pick 7. his score was a 16. weird cuz marino happened to have the same score an look at him. now im not sayin it doesn't affect his draft value but its effect on his draft pick will not b nearly as severe as everyone portrays it to be.

16 is better than 6 but 16 is still kinda low. i wouldn't be surprise to see him still available at 16.

Dan Marino had the world's best release to back up his throws. Vince Young can't dream about saying that, so another knock is only going to keep dropping him down the board.

i thought long before the wonderlic that young would have a hard time learning an NFL offense.

If it means nothing than why do they have players take it everyyear? Young could be special, But he is a 2 year project.

The QB average is 24. Others listed with below average scores:

Favre-22
Vick-20
Testaverde-18
Marino-16
Cunningham-15
McNabb-12
George-10


A bad wonderlic doesn't mean a bad QB. Don't think this should affect a teams judgement on if Young can play QB or not.

Edit: Also, McNair scored a 15.

Didn't we pick Marino up with the 27th pick though?

Somehwere around there I think it was 26 tho. However he had alot more questions around him other than just a bad test score

The Wonderlic is not meaningless but more teams are putting a greater emphasis on the personal interviews. If it takes a QB or another player more time to learn the NFL game, is he worth taking in the first round? Marino was suppose to sit his first year but the ineptitude of David Woodley accelerated his progression and well...the rest is history.

The only 2 year project will be if Young can finish reading the playbook
within the 2 years!

The pro game is a little different than college.
I could write and explain why but you already pointed out FOOLS I TELL "YA"

and if the fools think he is going to dominate the pro game
the "FOOLS" have another thing comming.
