London Fletcher makes GQ list of NFL's smartest players

While we're selling the September issue of GQ, we might as well mention that it also contains Michael Lombardi's list of the NFL all-brains all-stars.

Because I don't want to bury the lede, London Fletcher of the Redskins is on the list, which isn't exactly worthy of a Washington Post sports alert. Lombardi, senior analyst for, writes:

Constantly knocked for his lack of size (he's just five feet ten), but he has what I call "crib" talent: He had the smarts and instincts to be a Pro Bowler from the moment his momma plucked him out of his crib.

The rest of Lombardi's list:

Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice and Ravens safety Ed Reed; Houston Texans quarterback Matt Shaub; Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil; Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin; Tennessee Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan; Titans offensive tackle Michael Roos; and San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates.
