LSU defensive back Morris Claiborne scored a shockingly low four on the Wonderlic test, according to Pro Football Talk.
The Wonderlic test is a 50-question exam meant to test the intelligence and problem-solving skills of prospective NFL players. Claiborne's score of four is the lowest in recent memory, though quarterbacks Vince Young and Terrelle Pryor both reportedly scored below 10. Two 2011 Top 10 draft picks, Julio Jones and Patrick Peterson, both also reportedly score in the single digits on their test, but both have strong years.
The poor score elicited an immediate reaction on social media, including from Florida beat writer Pat Dooley. Dooley tweeted that a tree stump could score at least a five on the Wonderlic test, but deleted the tweet a few minutes later.
Claiborne was expected to be a Top 10 pick by most NFL draft prognosticators and is considered to be the best defensive player available, but this low Wonderlic score could cause a drop in the draft. The Wonderlic test isn't the most important thing when determining a player's potential -- actual skills on the field will always matter more -- but it will certainly raise question marks ahead of the draft in April.
