I heard Mayo interviewed on Sirius a few weeks ago and he was by far the most impressive interview I've heard (out of probably 15-20). He sounded intelligent, grounded in reality, and football smart. He blew away the hosts. I wish there were a way we could trade down and get him or get him in the second.

Google is your friend:
Wonderlic Sample Test

I agree with whiteboycarl: how do you not ace that test? - even if it is timed (unless you only have like two minutes). The only semi-difficult one is number 11, which requires knowing a little more than rudimentary math.

By the way, the answer given to #5 is incorrect.

I don't remember what the time limit is, but it is short enough that the test is at least semi-difficult to take. Even the smartest ivy league guys usually get high 30's low 40's on it.

The questions are not hard, but you only have 5 min to finish 50 questions. (or was that only for the sample?) Even so, I think they should be getting AT LEAST a 25. If the time limit IS more like 12 min, they should be getting at least 40.

Assume the first two to be true:
1. Rivers is an OLB with great speed.
2. Mayo is smarter than Rivers
3. Rivers will have more sacks than Mayo.

I have always thought that with out Sam Mill being able to call out the plays the opposing team was running was the key to the Dome Patrol. I am really hoping Villma will be able to do the same for us. With that said, you only need a couple of guys that can do that, the rest just need to be smart enough to follow their lead and be athletic enough to make the plays.

1. Mayo runs a 4.5.
2. Probably so
3. Mayo had more sacks as a Sophmore playing OLB (5) then Rivers has had the past two years (2) playing OLB.
