SI's Lopez predicts Freeman as failure


In his latest piece Lopez describes his "rule" for predicting quaterback success in the NFL. He calls it the Rule of 26-27-60.

If an NFL prospect scores at least a 26 on the Wonderlic test, starts at least 27 games in his college career and completes at least 60 percent of his passes, there's a good chance he will succeed at the NFL level.

Now, I obviously don't buy anything this simple and superficial as a prediction of NFL success. However, I thought it was interesting (in a fun, non-serious way). Lopez listed stats for a lot of quarterbacks in his column. Busts, Greats, Rookies. Unfortunately Freeman didn't appear in his piece. So I was curious and looked up the stats.
Freeman had 32 college starts. Check. Freeman's wonderlic was 27. Check. Unfortunately, his college completion percent was just 59.1%, falling just short of 60%.

Oh no! Failure! We're dooooooommmmmmmmeeeeeeeeddddd!
