Morris Claiborne Explains Wonderlic Score

Morris Claiborne doesn't see much of a reason to be embarrassed by his Wonderlic score, not because it was a low one, but because he saw the test as a pointless one when he received it.

Claiborne ended up being drafted by the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday night after the team traded up to the sixth overall pick to get him. He was a prized football player, leaving school behind. So when the Wonderlic test came and he saw it had nothing to do with football, he tanked it. Not on purpose or by accident. He was just ambivalent about it, which turns out to have made sense considering he was still highly sought-after at the draft.

Claiborne explained the situation like this:

"I looked at the test, and wasn't any questions about football. I didn't see no point in the test. I'm not in school anymore. I didn't complete it. I only finished 15 or 18 questions."
