# How Smart Are You? Take the Wonderlic Test and Find Out

February 19, 2013Along with tests of physical capabilities such as the 40-yard dash, vertical jump and bench press, the NFL Scouting Combine asks all draft-eligible players to perform a standardized, cognitive examination.

It is known as the Wonderlic test.

Players are presented 50 questions to be completed in 12 minutes. The questions are designed to test a person's capacity to learn and ability to problem-solve, although the correlation between a high Wonderlic score and NFL success is debatable.

You can find out more about the Wonderlic test by visiting the official website of the test.

Below, we present you a 15-question Wonderlic sample, taken from both Walter Football and ESPN.
