08:10 AM ET 04.27 | LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne couldn't have been happier with the Cowboys' selection Thursday, but the draft process hasn't been easy for a young man whose low Wonderlic score was leaked to the press. Profootballtalk.com first reported the poor test score, which was followed by another report of Claiborne's learning disability, which his agent, Bus Cook, denied to USA TODAY. ... [Said Claiborne:] "That test can't drop me. They say it's an IQ test. I came to the combine for football. I looked at the test, and wasn't any questions about football. I didn't see no point in the test. I'm not in school anymore. I didn't complete it. I only finished 15 or 18 questions."

As long as someone translates the playbook for him he should be ok.

This is pathetic. How many people feel this way about high school tests? A lot, I'm afraid. No offense Cowboys fans, but this is another reason for me to hate the Cowboys.

Bus Cook was Favres agent. I think it is a Loosiana thing. He will be a very good football player, makes millions and most likely be broke within two years after he leaves the game.

...and THAT is where a high Wonderlic test result would be rather helpful.

His major in college was kinesiology. I probably spelled that wrong but that doesnt sound like a general studies or communications degree.

The first thing you's gots to do, Morris, is get youself a posse...

April 27, 2012  08:29 AM ET

If you see no point in the Wonderlic, you get no points in the Wonderlic.

It does if all your classes are in the sport complex building. Get it?
You spelled it correctly, and I bet Claiborne cannot do that. Matters not, he is right, the only thing anyone ever asked him to do was play football. Ever.

Isn't that the churched up way of saying "gym class"?

The study of physical movement (specifically the human body) is not a tough major, but useful for an athlete especially if they plan to do scouting after their playing career is over.

50, you said Cook was Favre's agent. I'll bet he's still got his ears open.
