Ah, the mysteries of the Wonderlic Test. Pat McInally of Harvard is the only NFL Draft prospect to ever achieve a perfect score of 50 on the Wonderlic Test, the famous aptitude test administered to former college football players vying to impress NFL scouts at the Draft Scouting Combine.

Former member of the New England Patriots and current Cleveland Browns tight end Benjamin Watson also scored a 48, tied with Fitzpatrick for highest among current NFL players.

NFL Draft Combine: beware the workout warrior

nfl-draft-combine

Every year there is a Combine at Indy. Every year some team GM forgets what he saw on game film and falls in love with a player based on his “measurable.” Almost without exception that love turns to hate faster than a three card Monte player scrambles his cards.

That does not mean that the combine is worthless. It just means that a guy may look like Tarzan in shorts and a t-shirt but on the field he will often play like Jane. There are literally hundreds of examples of players that shoot up the draft boards of some teams only to win the “bust of the draft” award three years or less later.

NFL Draft Combine Stock Report: More Winners

cramer

In the words of DJ Khaled, in the now most overplayed song in all sports venues….”All I do is win, win, win.” And it applies to these three NFL Draft prospects.

Bad news surrounds everything NFL these days. It appears a deal will not be reached any time soon. But they extended the negotiating deadline another week. And there’s always a bull market somewhere. And good news for all you home-gamers is…the NFL Draft is right around the corner, and the combine just concluded.

We updated out second round mock a couple days ago. And a new update for both rounds will be here by Monday.

In the meantime, this is the first of two lightning rounds of winners and two more of losers from Indy.
