Are you smarter than a football player? Potential NFL players are asked to take the Wonderlic Test at the Scouting Combine in addition to running the 40-yard-dash, bench pressing 225 lbs., completing the vertical jump, etc.
The Wonderlic is a cognitive examination that gives players 12 minutes to answer 50 questions. While there’s no high correlation between a player’s score on the test and the his ability to perform on the field, the league still administers the test to evaluate a player’s ability to learn and problem-solve.
Here’s a sample question.
A bike travels 7 feet in 1/3 of a second. At the same speed, how many feet will it travel in 5 seconds?
