Morris Claiborne’s test score revealed… but, who does it speak more about; the league or the prospect?

The Stanford-Binet IQ test was designed to measure suitability of a student to fit within the school system and achieve a certain measure of success. It was never supposed to become synonymous with intelligence. But, it did. The Wonderlic test is built on a similar model and, in theory, it gauges a prospect’s ability to assess an NFL [...]

Morris Claiborne’s disability is a perfect example of why the Wonderlic Test is a joke.

LSU’s Morris Claiborne has a learning disability. This could be why he scored a four on the Wonderlic test at the NFL Scouting Combine. Feel like a jerk for laughing at his score for the past 24 hours? Good. Because I do too.

Nothing flawed about LSU's joy

ATLANTA LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne reminded me very much of a 2-year-old Saturday. This is a compliment, I promise. He flashed all of the best parts of that age, none of the bad ones. Anybody who has studied the behavior patterns of 2-year-olds through the lens of parenthood knows they live in the moment. Anger looks like anger, joy like joy. They are years away from reacting...

Tigers defense seeks spot in LSU history

Cornerback Morris Claiborne says he and teammates often talk about how they'd like the Tigers' 2011 defense to be remembered as best LSU ever had. That's a tall order considering the strong defenses fielded by LSU national title teams in 2003 and 2007, which each sent a handful of players on to the NFL. Yet this year's fast, play-making defense compares well to...
