Wonderlic Scores Reveal . . . What?

Former NFL scout John Middlekauf has revealed the Wonderlic scores for this draft’s top QBs:

Josh Allen 37

Josh Rosen 29

Sam Darnold 28

Baker Mayfield 25

Lamar Jackson 13

For comparison, here are some other Wonderlic scores:

Eli Manning 39

Aaron Rodgers 35

Tom Brady 33

Drew Brees 28

Russell Wilson 28

Joe Flacco 27

Ben Roethlisberger 25

Now here is the important part: Sam Darnold’s strength is his ability to create when a play breaks down. That requires football sense, which is a measure of intelligence. Does the Wonderlic test measure that? I wouldn’t use it to decide who to draft but I’m sure NFL teams take it into account when making a draft pick.

  1. Our wonderboy Darnold will be just fine, he should go #1 and if he ends up not going to Cleveland that’s all fine as well. Live long and prosper Sam.
