There have been a lot of very good NFL players over the years who have been aren't very smart.....here's an example. It isn't necessarily a prerequisite for being a good football player.

THE DUMBASS CANT READ HIS  PLAYBOOK.
If that turns out to be true, yeah, the team shouldn't draft him.  But for now, it assumes facts that really aren't in evidence.  The kid did well enough at LSU.

The Bucs are going to do their homework, rest assured. They used one of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits to take a closer look at him.

Are you claiming Einstien couldn't get better than a 4 on a Wonderlic test ?  LOL

I think you just made my point that a "learning disability " isn't an excuse for stupidity  .

 We label people with a "learning disability" in today's society who really have no other disability than being stupid - but we aren't allowed to say that because it hurts people's feelings.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

I don't disagree, but you have no idea what the situation is with Claiborne, so claiming he is just stupid is pretty ignorant.

and as long as they can play football LSU isn't going to deny them that quality education.

Easily determined - if he knows the difference between X's and O's, he can diagnose scenarios on a chalk/white board...then he doesn't have any problems with football intelligence and he's fine...

...if he's unable to do that, and has just been running around free-lancing...well he's still a freak of nature by accidentally doing the right things...repeatedly...and that won't happen in the NFL.

My guess is, put him on a chalkboard and throw a scenario at him, and he'll be fine. Sit him a room without a chalkboard and throw a scenario at him, and he'll be fine...give him a written exam asking him to breakdown a scenario in writing and he will fail.

If that's all it is...he'll fit in with the rest of the corners in the league.

A 4/50 is a guy who would have trouble stringing together a complete sentence.
