Wonderlic scores of the Steelers' draft picks

For what it's worth, following are the Wonderlic scores of the players selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2009 NFL draft. Most prospects take the test twice; the first number is the total number of correct answers (out of 50) on the first administration of the test. The second number is the total number of correct answers on the test administered at the Combine. DNT stands for "did not test"

1. Ziggy Hood (18, 21)
2. Kraig Urbik (28, 31)
3. Mike Wallace (DNT, 19)
4. Keenan Lewis (10, 14)
5. Joe Burnett (9, 12)
6. Frank Summers (unknown)
7. Ra'Shon "Sonny" Harris (12, 14)
8. A.Q. Shipley (DNT, 40)
9. David Johnson (19, 16)

For reference purposes, the lowest score (this year) of which I'm aware is that of DT Demonte Bolden of Tennessee (who went undrafted), and scored a 5 on his first test. (In fairness, Bolden posted a score of 18 at the Combine.)

As far as I know, the only score better than that of Shipley was that of CB Kevin Barnes out of Maryland (drafted by the Washington Redskins in the third round), who posted a score of 41 at the Combine.

I wonder why the NFL even administers the Wonderlic. Do teams ever disqualify or even downgrade a spectacular or even productive player because of a low Wonderlic score? Any idea what Mark Sanchez's Wonderlic score was?

At the Combine, Mark Sanchez reportedly answered 43 of the 50 questions and got a 28.
