So not exactly a seasonal post, but saw it on the yahoo front page in a story about 2 star players who bombed the wonderlic. First, the relevant Michigan part: Schilling scored a 35, which is the 6th highest score at the combine this year. Great job!
Now, the sad part. Apparently, Patrick Peterson was one of 4 guys who scored in the single digits (ouch) along with kids from South Carolina, Florida, and Oklahoma State. No, there's no trend there. Priceless quote:
"Peterson plays like a low-test guy," one NFL decision maker told PFW on the condition he remain anonymous
The other star is Georgia's AJ Green, who scored a 12. Scouts say a higher score is more important for offensive guys who have to learn sets than for defensive guys (like Peterson) who can just react.
"He will get it," one evaluator said. "You're going to have to take it slow with him and let him start at one position and let him learn on the run. He's not going to be able to handle learning all three positions. If you ask him to be an X, Y and Z, you're setting him up for failure."
Also on the yahoo front page is a link to an article on the Dagger (yahoo bball blog) about Michigan beating UT while scoring no FT's.
GO BLUE! BEAT DOOK!
