    Sources: Jameis Winston scored respectable 27 on Wonderlic test

    Jameis Winston's lofty draft status won't be the only similarity he'll share with future NFL Hall of Famer Peyton Manning. His Wonderlic test score rivals Manning's, too.

    While Wonderlic scores are becoming less relevant in draft equations, they still carry weight at some decision-making positions such as quarterback, an AFC personnel source told Yahoo Sports.

    But it certainly doesn't guarantee NFL success. For example, former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert scored a very impressive 42 on the test and has struggled mightily in the NFL.

    "[The Wonderlic] is a smaller piece now than it used to be, but it's generally helpful when it comes to some positions," the source said. "It's kind of a guardrail – a score doesn't tell you the whole story about a player, but at times it can tell you if there's something you might need to look at more closely. … For me, it becomes important if it's wild, like, way off what I'm expecting.

    "If it's 15 points lower than the norm, then that requires some research."

    Winston's score falling into line with other accomplished NFL starters shouldn't be a surprise. He received academic All-ACC honors in 2013 and 2014 at Florida State and was also accepted into Stanford during his recruiting process. Winston ultimately chose Florida State over the Cardinal.

    Some of the highest scores from other prominent and successful NFL starting QBs include theIndianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck (37), the Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers (35), the New England Patriots' Tom Brady (33) and the San Diego Chargers' Philip Rivers (30).

    You'd think that someone that got a full-ride at Stanford could muster up a better score than that.

    Really not shocked he did well on the test. His NFL career is going to come down to the decision he makes when he is out with his boys during the off season and there is no structure for him.

    I think the most shocking thing in the article is that Philip Rivers scored a 30.

    Was a joke. He probably got points deducted because he spelled his name wrong.

    I wonder if he would have gone to Stanford but his high school coach didn't tell him about the offer and he just fell in love with the family atmosphere of FSU

    It's a little known rule, but wearing a bolo tie while taking the test is a worth a 27 point bonus.

    Are you new to FSU fans? You're talking about a group of fans whose pre-2013 claim to fame was that in their golden era they were almost as good as Miami. Chew on that one for a bit.

    On Draft Academy, Jameis Winston admits shoplifted crabs was a hookup from a Publix employee (self.CFB)

    submitted 27 minutes ago * by Florida State Seminolespitchesandthrows

    "A week before was my buddy's birthday and we had got a cake and had met a dude that was inside Publix and he said hey any time you come in here I gotcha so on that day he hooked us up with that and when I came to get crab legs he did the same and he gave them to me and someone saw me walk out the door with them and called security."

    Copied it best I could. Most of it is word for word. I'm sure you can catch Draft Academy on rerun for 100% proof.



    is this the official jameis thread now?
