Daaaaa Light Switch?

Vince Young, an almost certain top five pick in the upcoming NFL Draft, pulled off an impressive feat at the NFL Combine this past weekend, as he scored a 6 on the Wonderlic Test. For those of you who don't know what the Wonderlic Test is, it is a 50 question test given to all NFL draft prospects that is suppose to be similar to an IQ test. ESPN has some sample Wonderlic questions here. To give you a sense of how pathetic Young's score is for a quarterback, the previous lowest known score was a 10 by Michael Bishop and Jeff George. And the score correlates to an IQ score of 72, which puts him in the Forrest Gump range in terms of IQ scores.

It makes you think how the hell did Vince Young did remain eligible for three years at Texas. I mean, I know Texas isn't exactly known for its strong academics, but even underwater basketweaving sounds a little too advanced for Vince. Sean at Kelly Green has come up with one possibility. This score also makes me wonder how is he going to pick up an NFL offense. If Vince can't figure out that if you buy 4 writing pads at 21 cents each, you will need 84 cents, how is he going to know what routes his receivers are running at I Y-Motion 245 H-Swing.

Einstein he is not.

UPDATE: The House Rock Built has gotten its hands on the copy of Vince Young's Wonderlic Test.
