      He is still way overhyped for some reason.

        Good. That means he's got the most important thing for a QB: intelligence.

        Unlike Scam Newton.

              This is true, but I recall seeing a big list of top Wonderlic scores and some big-time flops at QB were on it. I recall Rob Johnson as well as some other gifted thinkers on it.

              I don't think having a great Wonderlic will help you nearly as much as having a bad one will hurt you.

              I think intelligence is a must... but work ethic is the MOST important thing.

                    At least this shows he doesn't get nervous and panic on tests like he does on the field.

                          a) Making a throw...if QB1 throws a ball at 58 mph to a WR 12 yards down the field (but don't forget to factor the 7 yard drop) and has 8 yards of separation from a FS that is making a break on the ball at 20 mph, what are the chances that that ball is going to be caught by the WR and should that ball be thrown?

                          b) Presnap... if the offense is in an ace formation and the defense has 8 defenders in the box and appears to be sending at least 6 with the CBs playing press coverage, do you have enough protection and time to run the post-corner route AWAY from the FS or should you play it safe and audible to a screen?

                          c) During the play...if QB1 has the ball in a crowded pocket and is already wrapped up by the legs of LB2 and LB1 jumps over the pile pulling QB1's upperbody down while trapping his tibia/fibula under him, how many lbs of downward force will be necessary to be applied by LB1 (if he weighs 245 lbs) to break two bones that at max can withstand only 400 lbs of pressure before they snap?

                          The answers?

                          a) If your WR doesn't suck and tip the ball up in the air, he should catch it, the ball is arriving 3X faster than the player and the distance to travel is only 2.3X as far the player trying to make the play. So, throw the ball.

                          b) If Ed Reed is not the FS then make the throw or you're not playing against lockdown CBs, max protect with a 5 step drop and the ball should be away shortly after the 5th step.

                          c) I don't know, but Joe Theismann and Lawrence Taylor surely do.

                            Having a good Wonderlic score has nothing to do with how well you will perform on the field. On the other hand it is very important for teams to know whether the guy they are drafting in the first round is a big doofus or not.

                              Yeah, the benefit to Gabbert (assuming it's legit) will lie in the comparison to the other guys. Particularly if one or more of his "competitors" at the position score poorly. Kaepernick and Ponder should score highly, but I don't have a lot of confidence in Mallett, Newton, or Locker.
