A former NFL quarterback that is now an ESPN NFL analyst has deleted his controversial tweet about Tua Tagovailoa’s score in the Wonderlic at the NFL Combine.
Tagovailoa, who is seen by many to be a first round pick in the upcoming draft, was all over the news this week when his Wonderlic score leaked out and showed he scored a 13 out of a possible 50. That would later be dismissed as an old score, with his most recent one being 19 at the NFL Combine.
The average score is about 20.
ESPN NFL analyst Dan Orlovsky found Tua’s score to be confusing, stating he was “bothered” by the score and questioned if it was a “laziness” thing.
After being blasted, he deleted the tweet, but screenshots were taken.
He tried his best to clarify what he was saying.
“No I do not think Tua Wonderlic test score matters at all. I was confused initially by his score bc it doesn’t match his tape. Came to realize he’s a reactionary/instinct player and the test doesn’t test that. My initial tweet was wrong,” he wrote.
Social media wasn’t buying it:
The 2020 NFL Draft is set to begin on Thursday.
