The Wonderlic Test, which has been around since 1936, is widely used during the NFL combine to gauge one’s knowledge in math, vocabulary and reasoning abilities.
We’re at that time of the year when scores are starting to leak out and people overreact to certain scores that usually don’t end up meaning very much to how a player performs on the field.
Even still, the Wonderlic scores for the draft’s quarterback prospects were released and it showed Iowa standout Nate Stanley took home the top score with a 40 out of 50.
Unfortunately for Tua Tagovailoa, he came in dead last with a score of 13.
“A person who scores an average of 10 and above is considered literate and, therefore, seen by most employers as suitable for less demanding professions.”
Not really a good showing for players of the Alabama Crimson Tide, as WR Jerry Jeudy only scored a 9 on his wonderlic test.
Tagovailoa completed 69.3 percent of his throws for 7,442 yards with 87 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 32 appearances for Bama.
Most of the conversation leading up to the draft has been his recent injury history.
It remains to be seen if he will drop in the first round.
