Morris Claiborne, the LSU cornerback who was first contacted by the Dallas Cowboys Thursday at 8:30 pm, right before they drafted him – they didn’t talk to him once in 2012 – had this to say to Sirius Radio about his low Wonderlic score:
“I’m human, so some of the things that were being said on twitter got to me,” Claiborne said after his selection. “That test don’t tell me who I am and what time of guy I am and what kind of ability I have. That test cant drop me.
“They say it’s an IQ test. I came to the combine for football. I looked at the test, and wasn’t any questions about football. I didn’t see no point in the test. I’m not in school anymore. I didn’t complete it. I only finished 15 or 18 questions.”
Can’t wait until Claiborne goes against Dez Bryant in practice. Two future stars (well, Bryant is already kind of one). Can you imagine the trash talk around Mo’s low Wonderlic and Bryant’s … issues?
Once Claiborne locks down Jeremy Maclin and Victor Cruz, nobody will care about this Wonderlic score. (Assuming people care right now.) [USA Today]
