NFL’s Annual Campaign Against Student-Athletes Under Way


Dr. Horacio Nicaragua has compiled a list of Wonderlic scores for some of this year’s NFL Draft’s prospects over at his blog.

This list, which really started to attract attention when Vince Young was discovered to be borderline retarded, continually delivers a black eye to the institution of collegiate athletics. Young was initially rumored to have scored a 6, a Wonderlic score usually reserved for the illiterate.

Young is not alone, however. San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore also scored a 6 on his Wonderlic, and Javon Walker scored a 9. A score of 20 indicates average intelligence, while a score under 10 suggests illiteracy.

So which of this year’s NFL Draft prospects are illiterate?

The Illiterate:
Andre Caldwell, WR — University of Florida (8)
6’0, 204 pounds
40-Yard Dash: 4.35
Vertical Leap: 33
Projected Round: 2

Ali Highsmith, LB — Louisiana State University (7)
6’0, 220 pounds
40-Yard Dash: 4.95
Projected Round: 4-5

Tracy Porter, CB — Indiana University (4)
5’11, 188 pounds
40-Yard Dash: 4.37
Projected Round: 2-3

Travis Williams, CB — East Carolina University (4)
5’10, 186 pounds
40-Yard Dash: 4.45
Projected Round: N/A
