Report: LSU’s Morris Claiborne scores a four on Wonderlic test

Before the NFL Draft each year, potential draft picks are put through a gauntlet of tests, including the combine, medical testing and the now famous Wonderlic exam, an intelligence test consisting of 50 multiple choice questions that must be answered in 12 minutes.
An average score on the exam is a 21, but each year, there are outliers who impress with their high scores (Harvard product Ryan Fitzpatrick scored a 48 on the test, the highest score among active players) and sometimes, their low scores (Vince Young reportedly scored a seven on the exam before retaking the test and receiving a 13).
According to multiple sources, LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne set a new low this season when he scored a four on the exam, meaning in 12 minutes, he answered four of 50 questions correctly. Claiborne, a junior, has supposedly been enrolled in college classes for the past three years. According to LSU, he is majoring in general studies. He is expected by many scouts to be a top-5 pick in this year’s draft.
In order to see what players like Claiborne and Fitzpatrick had to endure while taking the Wonderlic, WEEI’s own Rob Bradford attempted the test two years ago and put former Red Sox third baseman Mike Lowell to the test as well. To see how they did, check out this video:
