    This seems like a bad move to me, he should go in the combine to make up for his less than amazing senior bowl

    I'm of the opinion that the wonderlic means nothing. I think the most important "intangible" for a QB is peripheral vision. This is the acuity that you can see of things that you aren't directly looking at, e.g. try reading a couple of lines below the point you are looking at and it begins to get hard. They say that hockey legend Wayne Gretzky had phenomenal peripheral vision, aiding him in puck control etc. because he could look ahead but still maintain possession.

    Though it would be very difficult to standardise, this would be an intriguing "drill" for QBs to do at the combine. Imagine finding out your perfect physical QB can't even focus on a slot when looking at a wideout, you might think twice.

    As for problem solving, surely its mostly read and react, go through your progression and pass when you see a hole. If you can pass without having to make a fixation to the second receiver, you might save a tenth of a second, which could be vital.

    LOL, no way. Not even Charlie Casserly could do that.

    I wonder who the niners get. It better not be a QB in any round or I'll freak.

    Yeah a lot of picks have changed...some are big changes in the Top 10 some aren't.

    I really don't think it matters how either do in their pro day or combine in terms of who is the first QB selected...I feel this is pretty much a lock so check out my next mock it will be out next week probably tuesday at the latest.

    I agree with Matt, the wonderlic isn't a huge deal in the vast majority of cases. I think it comes down to how Woodson does at the pro-day and how Ryan does at the pro-day and/or combine. Brohm is the darkhorse if they both falter and he has OK workouts.

    IQ test?

    The Wonderlic really doesn't matter only if the player is really dumb and scores low like Vince Young did.

    His IQ Test I think will determine where he is drafted. He has everything to make a great NFL QB and in my opinion he is better than Jamarcus Russell who went #1 last year.

    Good idea. I think he's the #1 QB right now.

    Eh a lot of those drills like the 40, don't really matter that much for QB's. Most important part of the combine for them is probably the interviews.
