What Is The Point Of The NFL Wonderlic Test Other Than Making Certain Athletes Look Stupid


During the NFL combine, college football prospects are put through a plethora of drills and tests in order for NFL teams to better evaluate a player’s skill set. They test all types of things like athletic ability, strength, speed, quickness, and mental aptitude. One of the most notorious and talked about is this required 50-question standardized test called the Wonderlic. The prospects’ scores on this test typically become news and a measure of their intelligence. But is this test really necessary in determining what round an athlete should be drafted in.

Let’s check to see what Twitter thinks.


Sure the Wonderlic test probably measures a player's intelligence, but it doesn't measure a player's athleticism and more importantly it doesn't measure a player's heart. Some of the best players in the NFL ended up with some of the worst scores on this test. Because of this, a growing number of NFL journalists and fans believe the Wonderlic test is outdated, ill-administered and demeaning.
