10:07 AM ET 05.05 | Morris Claiborne, the Dallas Cowboys' first-round draft pick, bolted from the IQ test during the NFL combine, and his low score has been gossiped about as if it was a scarlet letter? But by pressing Miles to allow him to focus on cornerback at LSU, Claiborne proved he could calculate, assess a situation and make a cogent logical case for his position. "Nobody ever said I was dumb until this whole thing, sir," said Claiborne.

You're dumb!

You tell ' em Morris!

You can't be dumb and be successful in the NFL, especially on defense. Football is a game of strategy and deception. Dumb cornerbacks get beat, and everybody sees it.

A dumb Cowboy? Is that really news?

I'm sorry that you had this publicly, Morris, but you're dumb. Forrest Gump dumb. Statistically speaking, a monkey choosing answers randomly would have scored higher on the Wonderlic than you did.

So what. Intellegence cannot be based on a test. I know a lot of peeps that would ace this test but are dumb as a box of rocks when it comes to common sense.
