Wonderlic scores are in for the 2017 NFL Draft class and on Monday the top scores for the quarterbacks were released.
Miami standout Brad Kaaya topped his peers with an impressive score of 34, according to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. Kaaya was just one of three quarterbacks — joined by Pitt’s Nathan Peterman (33) and Texas A&M’s Trevor Knight (30) — to score at least a 30 on the test.
The other top scores belonged to Josh Dobbs, 29; DeShone Kizer, 28; C.J. Beathard, 26; Mitchell Trubisky, 25; Davis Webb, 25; Patrick Mahomes, 24; Chad Kelly, 22; Jerod Evans, 21; Deshaun Watson, 20.
The Wonderlic test is a 50-question exam that players have only 12 minutes to complete.
Of course, Wonderlic scores don’t automatically mean a player is destined for greatness or that he will fail, but it gives NFL teams an idea of the type of work a player is willing to put into his studies. Then again, Josh Dobbs, an Aerospace Engineering major, didn’t have the highest score and he’s arguably the smartest player in college football. So does the test really matter?
