Honestly we should never assume a bad player has any understanding of blinds and how they affect his stack. We need to know what type of terrible he is before we make a read in this situation.

good point. The other thing is what the buyin is. a "terrible" player in a $55 is > a "terrible" player in a $5 all things equal. They will make much different types of erriors.
Will make a dif it is MTT or SNG also. I assumed in my response prior it was a low buyin MTT
In low buyins bad players regardless of type tend not to know to open shove 15bb and only do it with monsters or good hands that they are afraid to play post with IMO. A laggy awful player might widen that range a bit but unless you know otherwise, I really think it's a quite polarized range unless they are actually just below average as opposed to terrible.
