I recently wrote an article about the best free agent quarterbacks remaining in the NFL and Vince Young made the list. Someone made a comment about how dumb Young was because he had such a bad Wonderlic score. That got me thinking about QB's with bad Wonderlic scores and made me come to the conclusion that Wonderlic scores really mean nothing at and are only good for discussion. So here is my list of five quarterbacks with the worst Wonderlic scores that had good NFL careers. 5. Jim Kelly - 15 Jim Kelly scored a 15 on his Wonderlic test and yet had a Hall Of Fame career. He is the best quarterback in Buffalo Bills history and won the 1984 MVP award. He threw for a total of 35,467 yards, 237 TD's, and had a completion rating of 84.4 over his career.4. Steve McNair - 15 McNair was drafted 3rd overall in the 1995 draft and had a very good NFL career being named to the Pro Bowl 3 times and tied for the league MVP with Peyton Manning in 2003. McNair threw for a total of 31,304 yards, 174 TD's, and a completion percentage of 60.1.3. David Garrard - 14 Even though Garrard didn't have a career like some of these other guys he still exceeded expectations after being drafted in the 4th round of the 2002 NFL draft. He was able to be name to one Pro Bowl team in 2009. He threw for a career total of 16,003 yards, 89 TD's, and a completion percentage of 61.62. Donovan McNabb - 14 McNabb was drafted number 2 overall in the 1999 NFL draft by the Eagles and finished with a great career being named to the Pro Bowl 6 times in his career. McNabb threw for a total of 37,276 yards, 234 TD's, and a completion percentage of 59. Maybe one day we will see him in the Hall Of Fame.1. Jeff George - 10George was selected number overall in the 1990 NFL draft by the Indianapolis Colts. Most say George had a somewhat disappointing career with only a couple playoff appearances and no Superbowl appearances. He finished his career with 27,602 yards passing, 154 TD's, and a completion percentage of 57.9So that's it, in the end the Wonderlic scores do not mean all that much as you can see these guys have well below the average score for a QB and still had very impressive careers.
