NFL Draft: The Annual Drama of the Wonderlic Test

It's that time of year again! With Mario Manningham reportedly scoring a whopping 6 out of 50, I am reminded of the fun that is the Wonderlic. Here is a link to a sample test.

You'll have 2 minutes to answer 9 simple questions. I got 9 out of 9 in 90 seconds. Now I know I didn't run the 40 and have to do any reps on the bench right before I took the test but I am pretty sure I would still get at least 7 of them right. Project that out to a 50 question exam and that is about 38-39 right. There is no excuse for anyone scoring under a 10.

Looking at the list below, quarterbacks drafted since 2000, you can see that those who scored under 25 (under 50%) usually do not succeed.
