Default NFL teams weigh Wonderlic tests

One of the many variables NFL teams are factoring into their draft grades are scores from the Wonderlic tests given at the scouting combine. Wonderlic tests are given to help gauge the intelligence of prospects.

NFL teams expect most prospects will score well because players can prepare for the tests. When a player has an unusually low score, it sets off alarms.

A person of average intelligence is supposed to score a 20. NFL teams like to see quarterbacks, offensive linemen, middle linebackers and safeties score higher than that because those positions can be mentally demanding.

At the quarterback position, none of the top prospects laid a Wonderlic egg. Boston College'sMatt Ryan, he of the off-the-charts intangibles, scored an impressive 32. And his score was matched by Lousiville's Brian Brohm, who is the second-highest-rated quarterback after Ryan on most boards.

Joe Flacco of Delaware scored a 27 and Chad Henne of Michigan scored a 22. Both are considered second-round prospects.

Most of the top offensive linemen also tested well. Michigan'sJake Long scored a 26. Pittsburgh's Jeff Otah scored a 28. Southern California's Sam Baker scored a 27. Vanderbilt's Chris Williams scored a 32. Boston College's Godser Cherilus scored a 25. Virginia's Brandon Albert scored a 23.

Boise State offensive tackleRyan Clady had the only disappointing score from the top group of blockers, a 13.

At the linebacker position there are two players who look like surefire first-rounders, but one tested better than the other. Tennessee'sJerod Mayo scored a 26 while USC's Keith Rivers scored a 16. Rivers' test probably won't hurt his stock because most teams consider him an outside linebacker.

Kenny Phillips of Miami, the only safety expected to go in the first round, did not help himself with a 16 test score.

If anyone knows where all the draft prospects scores are can you post the link?

So, I took the sample Wonderlic test at http://www.angelfire.com/fl3/existence/wonderlic.html

It is so easy - some of these guys must be almost retarded to get such low scores.

Check it out for yourself.

It certainly does make you wonder, these guys were in college?

I'm sorry, this test may not mean much in the grand scheme of football, but I wouldn't want a guy if he scored below let's say 16. They truly must be idiots.

The New York Daily News reports that Arkansas RB Darren McFadden scored a 17 on the Wonderlic Exam.

Well . . . at least he scored better than Dan Marino.

This topic seems to come up every year. I can't believe how dumb some of these players are. I scored an 8/9 and I barely thought about any of the questions.
