This image from Ben Fry via Marginal Revolution  shows data from intelligence tests given to all NFL players. Centers and guards beat QBs with tackles close behind. What's going on with wide receivers, cornerbacks and running backs?

Money Quote: ""The closer you are to the ball, the higher your score."

Sort of like cities ala Jacobs and Lucas.

Centers and tackles, not guards, score higher than QBs.
