Apparently bright is not bright because some dumb people are smart but the test is too dumb to know that this dummy is smart.

Why would teams be interested in getting cooked results. Not that NFL players are particularly sharp but don't you want to know if said player is an idiot?

So guys who went to college need to have the playing field leveled? Based on socio-economics?

Well I would say the biggest flaw in the wonderlic is that not being able to read quickly is a huge setback. It doesn't make you "dumb" if you read slowly. You don't even need to be able to read to play in the NFL anyway. There's also no correlation between performance on the test and performance in the NFL, so I'm not surprised that teams would turn to something new.

But they went to college. I understand reading disabilities. Those who have diagnosed learning issues should be able to take an alternate version. But these guys wen to college.

That doesn't mean they were learning anything or being taught anything like at UNC.

Well they have to take the new and old tests, so I'm not sure I see the problem. And even though all the players went to college, it doesn't mean that they learned much or were even prepared for college to begin with. I think the Wonderlic is a good test for certain jobs. I just don't think it's the right test for the NFL.
