    Didnt Dan Marino get one of the lowest scores ever? So it had to be out back then in the early 80's, I still remember some people bringing that up as to why it doesnt mean all that much, guys with some of the highest scores never get off the bench.

      i think when doing this you really need to only consider the guys in the first 3 rounds of the draft, because after that point, quarterbacks aren't really looked at to be starters. Talent is obviously a huge factor in this equation, i don't care how high your score is if you have no talent.

      In theory, the QBs who go in the first three rounds have the most talent


      Sig by me... Hold the applause.

        I believe both Dan Marino got a 13; Steve McNair got a 15, IIRC.

        I've always thought of the Wonderlic for QB's as being similar to the 40 for other players. A player's performance in the 40 does little to indicate what kind of football player he'll be. It's not without merit, but it's greatly overrated, IMO. Same goes for the Wonderlic. It's nothing more than a small piece of the puzzle.

          Really? I mean the guy is in the NFL because of his decision making and accuracy. He is known as an intelligent QB.

            sure. but you can tweak with said formula to basically put your list with quantitative results.

              why don't they just look at GPA's and Graduation rates instead of the wonderlic?

                  Yeah I was wondering the same thing. On the other hand that'd make Alex Smith the greatest QB ever.
