Morris Claiborne Not the First to Fail Wonderlic

By: Justin Pawlowski

Before the jokes start on local sports talk radio, let me be the first to proclaim that failing the Wonderlic test is probably the biggest non-story that revolves around the NFL Draft every year.

We had avoided the wonderlic story this year…until now.

According to reports, LSU CB Morris Claiborne scored a whopping 4 on the Wonderlic at the combine.

Yes, a 4!

What does this mean about Claiborne as a football player?  Probably nothing.

Every year we see these top athletes scoring poor on the wonderlic, yet still having success in the NFL.  Hell, just last year we saw AJ Green (10) and Patrick Peterson (9) struggle on the wonderlic and go on to spectacular rookie seasons.

Being in Tampa, I’ve already seen the over-reaction by Buccaneers fans.  It really is funny.

Do you think the Bucs new DBs coach Ron Cooper is surprised by this finding that Claiborne scored a 4 on the wonderlic?

Do you think it will effect his judgement of Claiborne heading into the NFL draft?

By the way, Cooper was also the DBs coach at LSU for the past 3 years, so if there is any person that knows about Claiborne and the ability he can bring to a defense, it’s Cooper.

Once again, we see these stories every year, and every year they are blown way out of proportion.  Claiborne might not be very smart, but you might want to check out his film before coming to your final conclusion of him.
