AJ Green and Patrick Peterson among lowest Wonderlic scores.

Both talents are projected to go in the top 10, both have been mocked to the Bengals at one time or another. Peterson scored a 9 out of 50, Green scored a 10.

One long time NFL evaluator had this to say of Peterson:

A scout with deep knowledge of the kid said, "The more I'm around him, the more I love him even more. I love the kid, and I love the talent. But I don't like the way he plays with his back to the ball. He has an instinct issue, and I think it's tied to his mental [ability]. He can only handle so much. He's not a quick processor. It's a scary year to be drafting in the top 10 because they all have some issue."

When speaking of Green, another evaluator had this to say:

"He will get it," one evaluator said. "You're going to have to take it slow with him and let him start at one position and let him learn on the run. He's not going to be able to handle learning all three positions. If you ask him to be an X, Y and Z, you're setting him up for failure."

So what does this mean? Well both are going to need to be eased into the pro game. If we get Green, we may have another Jerome on our hands (Jerome scored a 17) who will be stuck in one position. If this is the case, who will have to make the move to Y? And will Gruden be able to simplify the normally complex WCO and all his packages?

So what do you guys think of all this? Sound off in the poll.
