Applying the 2011 QB Wonderlic Scores to the 26-27-60 Rule

Brains AND Beauty.

Two months ago we covered the 26-27-60 rule and applied it to the 2011 QB class. The rule in short is:

If an NFL prospect scores at least a 26 on the Wonderlic test, starts at least 27 games in his college career and completes at least 60 percent of his passes, there's a good chance he will succeed at the NFL level.

Cam Newton, Jake Locker, and Colin Kapernick already failed this rule based on a sub-60% completion percentage. Well, their Wonderlic scores did nothing more to suggest they warrant a first round pick:

McElroy 43, Gabbert 42, Ponder 35, Stanzi 30, Dalton 29, Mallett 26, Newton 21, Locker 20. 

Jake Locker. Ouch. So, out of all the top QBs that passed all 3 rules are: McElroy, Dalton, Gabbert, and Ponder. Again, take a look at the two buckets who fall into the HAVE PASSED and NOT HAVE PASSED this formula.

Note: Kaepernick's agent reported the Nevada QB scored a 40, but I couldn't confirm that online. Wikipedia, you failed me again.
