Well, that's rude. As accurate as can possibly be, but - nevertheless - rude. This is just another reminder that the scouting process is a thankless one. If Dalvin Tomlinson had posted single digits in the Wonderlic he would have Darren Rovell comparing his intelligence to that of a bagger at ShopRite. Instead he's got a transcript worthy of an entry level gig at a successful accounting firm, and - other than a useful degree for the future - what does he get for his efforts? A flat out dismissal of the importance of his educational prowess. I get that number crunching doesn't exactly translate to the gridiron, but you'd think Jerry Reese could have been a little nicer about it. Maybe he could have tipped the proverbial cap by praising his new defensive lineman's abilities as a fast learner? I don't know, but literally anything other than a quote that basically translates to "who needs schooling to become a 310 pound roadblock?" would have been more respectful to a guy that somehow made it out of Alabama with life skills that transcend Saban-isms.
I don't doubt that Dalvin Tomlinson knows the deal. He sacrificed the acknowledgment of all his non-athletic qualities and accomplishments in exchange for a relatively short stint that will pay him millions of non-guaranteed dollars and undoubtedly leave him dealing with a lifetime of migraines. There's no arguing that he willingly accepted that tradeoff, but Jerry Reese didn't have to go out of his way to draw attention to how lopsided it could potentially be by reminding everyone that his new employee doesn't have to be smart to play the position of a big dumb animal.
