Harvin's Wonderlic Score: Well, at least he beat Chris Leak

Percy Harvin's 40-yard dash time, route-running and dynamic college resume are no doubt impressive to NFL scouts, but here's something that's not.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Harvin racked up an 12 on the Wonderlic test. Now, that's not as bad as Vince Young's (alleged) 6 or former Gator Chris Leak's 8, but that's not encouraging when Harvin (pictured, at least he beat his high school jersey number) is expected to play receiver, running back and kick returner at the next level.

FAN IQ says a 10 indicates literacy and a 20 shows average intelligence, meaning the receiving crop as a whole is a few DVDs short of a box set, if you know what I'm saying.

Here's a look at some of the other WRs, from the Tribune's list:

Michael Crabtree, Texas Tech: 15
Darrius Heyward-Bey, Maryland: 14
Hakeem Nicks, North Carolina: 11

Missouri's Jeremy Maclin was the bright spot, tallying a 25. Looks like he'll be the head of the class at Rookie Camp.
