Alvin Kamara had the highest Wonderlic score among the top RBs

Always thought Alvin was a smart kid so this doesn't surprise me.

According to The Journal Sentinel’s Bob McGinn, Fournette scored an 11 out of 50 on the Wonderlic test at the NFL Combine. A score of 20 is considered “average” intelligence, and the average score for running backs in 16.

Florida State RB Dalvin Cook also scored an 11, and Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon scored a 12. Stanford RB Christian McCaffrey recorded a 21, while Tennessee RB Alvin Kamara scored a 24.
I've been saying for a while now that Alvin Kamara is the next Marshall Faulk. And Marshall was known for his incredible football intelligence. Kurt Warner said that Marshall Faulk would read coverages like a QB and tell him what the defense was doing. This just goes to show Alvin has the potential to be an intelligent football player like Marshall Faulk. Whoever gets him in this draft will get a huge steal.

Moral of the story:

Running backs are mouth breathing idiots.

Fortunately, not our guy though!

How many MLBs can you realistically take on head to head since age 5 before you're lost in a fog?

Fournette should have scored the highest score on the Wonderlic since he looks like he's 35.

Ladainian Tomlinson scored a 13 and he's going into the HoF in a few months.

I think it has more to do with how well you take on those MLB's, and your teacher looking the other way when you fail to study, turn in homework, or go to class.

Its true that a wonderlic score is not dispositive for NFL success but if talent is relatively equal, I'll always take the guy who is more intelligent.

It's also position dependent too. I would say intelligence is required more at QB than RB. Many of the QBs that have awful Wonderlic scores (Jeff George, Chris Leak, Vince Young, and Paxton Lynch) have been big time NFL flops. If you can barely read a book, it would be hard to read a defense as well in the NFL.

That's why you DON'T do it.

RB is not about taking punishment. But you have to be tough enough to handle it.

So with all this talent and Louis Riddock saying the other day on Mike and Mike that Josh Dobbs received horrible coaching while at UT what does that say about CBJ?
