As usual, 100% correct.
the wonderlic test means nothing about how u can play the game of football, ryan leaf scored 11 points higher than dan marino did and look who turned out to be the hall of famer and argueably the best quarterback ever!
If all 3 qbs still on the board at 3rd pick we trade with Oakland (#7 and#38 ) they take Young we pick choice of qbs or qb left at #7 and pick up extra 2nd rnd pick.
It should take more than the Raiders second to move up four spots.
I don't care about the experts but it would be nice if they had the balls to say this guy is the best. Some have, at the very least mel kiper has seperated cutler from the other 2 and now has him way down at 20th with lienart and young 3rd and 4th on his big board. The titans have to come to some conclusion that one guy is best for our team and will be the best pick. Then they need to boldly go get that guy. If they like cutler the most i think we should trade down a few spots with the raiders if they want lienart bad enough maybe they at least have to consider trading up to guarentee getting him.
Ghostz, the nfl pays good money to have players take that test. If it was meaningless they would not do that. No QB has scored below a 10 and amounted to anything. Jeff george scored a 10, micheal bishop scored a 9. Maybe marino is at the bottom threshhold for a QB going on to be successful but a 6 score followed by a 7 might indicate that a player doesn't have the intellect neccessary to learn a system and understand the intricacies of being an nfl QB.
Simply picking out two guys like that is meaningless because success or lack of it depends on many things but a poor wonderlic like a poor 40 time could move a guy back a couple of spots. Peyton manning scored a 29 and jeff george scored a 10. Does that mean that the wonderlic does matter? I will say this, lienart's 35 score puts him in a better light with some teams than young's scores.
