NFL football is brains and bronze. That’s why the Wonderlic test is part of the combine’s array of testing - to test a player’s IQ. The test is comprised of 50 questions, and players have 12 minutes to complete the assessment. The average score in the NFL is a 21.
While a high score on the Wonderlic doesn’t guarantee success in the NFL, the test is still administered to get a better feel for the athlete as a whole.
“Vince Young made headlines last year when it was rumored that he scored a 6. As we all saw in 2006, the Wonderlic doesn’t mean much. St. Louis’ Ryan Fitzpatrick scored a 50, and he’s nothing more than a backup quarterback.” – Walter Football
