One of the hot topics on this site lately has been our new left tackle Ryan Clady. While all of the physical tools seem to be in place, there is still the concern regarding his Wonderlic test score of a 13. While some contend that there are several non-intelligence related factors that could result in such a low score, there still remains some doubt. After all, this man is responsible for protecting our guy's blindside.
Take a look at the big name linemen taken in this year's draft. The next lowest score is Branden Albert with a 23. That to me is a significant variance between Clady's score and the rest of the pack. But to give you a little perspective, take a look at some of the Quarter Backs taken in the past. I see some great Qbs with border-line retarded scores (Marino-15, Bradshaw-15). Now these guys ran potent offenses with great success, and they were doing much more important jobs than just blocking.
Take a look at the average scores for each position. The first thing that jumped out at me was how the offensive tackle ranks out of all positions: 1st. With an average score of 26, I'm not feeling too good about this (George Foster memories). Anyways, take this test and see how you do. Remember this is a timed test so you can't take more than 2 minutes for each question.
