    Intelligence is definitely a factor...

    Do not want another Vince Young..

    Manziel IMO is the smartest QB of the bunch, both mentally and physically. His body will adapt to the NFL quicker than the others and he'll find his niche.

    Yea he did, and he sucks. More reason no one should care about this stuff. I simply posted it because its news and its not about one of the topics we've beaten to death the last few weeks.

    His body??? He ain't getting bigger.

    He needs to learn urgency and show some clean mechanics with his "I'm JohnnyOVO feet"

    And you using the wonderlic as a qualifier is awesome... I mean just awesome.

    Absolutely ZERO relationship between wonderlic score and production at the next level.

    If anything... If the wonderlic was the be all end all... Our Harvard grad with a 48 should have been just fine.

    But continue.

    Let me play devil's advocate. Ryan Fitzpatrick does not have a lot of talent and was a 7th round pick from an Ivy League school. Yet he will be going into his 9th year in the NFL this fall. So far he has started a total of 68 games. Lots of QBs with a lot more talent have not come close to doing what Fitzy has in the NFL. Perhaps his intelligence is the X factor. I think it is likely Fitzy would not have made it more than one year in the NFL without being so smart.

    48 > 32

    And while that could be a rational assumption... It's still just that.

    High QB Wonderlic scores: Fitzpatrick 48, McElroy 43, Gabbert 42, Henson 42, Ax Smith 40, E Manning 39, Husak 39, Br Griese 39, Stafford 38.

    Gabbert gots em by 10 points bruh
