The Chargers tackle was Max Starks who has ~100 NFL starts. Use to be pretty good

Operative phrase being "used to be." Now he's terrible, would make Kwame Brown look like an All-Pro. He's one of those guys that Bill Walsh would have cut about 2-3 seasons prior before he plummeted to the bottom.

The average Wonderlic score last year among receivers was about 18, which is what Jon Baldwin scored. Anquan Boldin scored a 31 and I can't find the article, but i think Marlon Moore was in the 30's. So Harper's 33 is far above average.

As we know, Wonderlic scores rarely relate to NFL success. It can't hurt, but it doesn't necessarily help. A couple of years ago, Alabama QB Greg McElroy scored a 48 and he's still on the Bengals practice squad.

Well those scores aren't bad, but I'm curious, which group has the lowest wonderlic score?

I don't think wonderlic relates to a lot of success but it should show that the guy has a good work ethic and is willing to study, which I hope is what Harper is doing right away with the playbook.

Exactly, you have to at least be smart enough to digest a playbook.

Punks all of them.

Can handle people with energy and character who haven't won yet but don't mouth off and just pay respect and give it all they have.

Seattle and their fans are the opposite of anything good. Just loud mouthed punks. I have never wanted to destroy a team or fan base like this ever. Not even the Raiders. At least they had respect while they acted crazy.

This is so true. Seattle's fans and the teams they support have done the impossible in one respect. Being from Sacramento, I have always loathed all teams from Los Angeles. However, because of how obnoxious, self-important, and infantile the Seattle Sounders' fans are, I have thrown my full support behind the Los Angeles Galaxy or, for that part, any team that plays the Sounders.

Also, being from Sacramento, I was disgusted by the way that Seattle Fan looked down its nose at the city of Sacramento during the attempted theft of the Kings from my hometown. Granted, Sacramento is not (at this point) a bustling metropolis, but the last thing I needed was the arrogance and condescension emanating from Microsoft's headquarters.

So, yes, I loathe the Seahawks because they are simply a reflection of their fans (or the other way around...you choose). And I can't wait for the 49ers to answer the question, "What's your deal," unequivocally. Our deal is that we own you and that you have been found wanting.

Go Niners!

This guy would make for a heck of a red zone target. Unstoppable!

And then he was cut.

He was cut mostly because Cam kicked his ass. But Starks has been good for over 8 years. Starks started almost every game at OT for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the last 8 years, so he was no slouch.

Don't know if a rookie can tell us much other than what was worked on and give insight on strengths and weaknesses
