LSU's Leonard Fournette, Florida State's Dalvin Cook and Stanford's Christian McCaffrey are three of the top running backs available in the upcoming NFL draft, but McCaffrey reportedly may have an advantage in one area: the Wonderlic test.
On Wednesday, Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported Fournette and Cook both scored 11 out of 50, while McCaffrey notched a 21.
Mark Heim of AL.com described the test: "Administered at the NFL Scouting Combine, the Wonderlic is an intelligence test used to assess the aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving."
Heim added context to the scores on the 50-question multiple choice test that lasts 12 minutes: "A score of 20 is intended to indicate average intelligence, while a score of 10 or higher indicates the subject is literate."
Tennessee's Alvin Kamara finished with a 24, which was the highest of the running back scores listed in McGinn's report.
While this is one of many measures used to evaluate the prospects leading up to the draft, the low scores from Fournette and Cook don't cancel out their years of dominance on the field at the highest levels of college football.
Bleacher Report's Matt Miller had Fournette going No. 2 overall to the San Francisco 49ers, Cook going No. 19 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and McCaffrey going No. 8 to the Carolina Panthers in his most recent mock draft.
