Every year, when players leave college to join the ranks of the NFL, they are tested, poked and prodded by most, if not all, NFL teams that are considering drafting the young men.
Though some of the tests are physical, there is one test that is intended to check out the smarts of a player: the Wonderlic.
The Wonderlic test score is supposed to show teams not only how smart someone is but how fast he can read, understand and answer the questions that are provided.
Sometimes great players score horribly, while some horrible players score great.
Everyone that reads rumor sites hears about the players that do horribly and wonders how it could be possible that they do so badly on these tests.
Though it is impossible to take the same test that NFL prospects take without either signing up for the NFL draft or paying for the test, I have found a site that will give you a sample Wonderlic.
No, I am not being paid for this, and no, it will not cost you anything. You do not need to supply an email address, nor do you have to register, log in or give ANY personal information.
This test is simply for fun, and anyone that wants to take it is welcome to.
However, I am hoping that everyone that does take this test will come back and post what your score is.
Don't cheat. Once you start, finish it and post your results in the comments. I scored a 33.
Here is a second test. This one has nine questions and gives you two minutes to answer as many as possible.
After you get your number, go back and look at the first page to get your score. Mine was a 39.
Here are some players from the NFL and what they scored on the test.
Eli Manning: 39
Aaron Rodgers: 35
Tom Brady: 33
Steve Young: 33
John Elway: 30
