If you've never heard of the Wonderlic, it's an exam given to players entering the NFL draft every year.
The Wonderlic is an exam comprised of 50 questions. Players have 12 minutes to complete the test. The average score (out of 50) is a 21.
Vince Young made headlines last year when it was rumored that he scored a 6 (though he earned a 16 on his second attempt). On the other end of the spectrum, Buffalo's Ryan Fitzpatrick scored a 50.
Some sample scores of other players include: Drew Bledsoe - 37; Steve Young - 33; John Elway - 30; Dan Marino - 16; Donovan McNabb - 14; Hakeem Nicks - 11; Sebastian Janikowski - 9.
Below is a set of 12 questions that are like those that might appear on the Wonderlic. I had another test listed before, but our friends at Wonderlic - Go to the offical Wonderlic Learn more about the Wonderlic Cognitive Abilities Test - sent us over this great PDF.
If you want to see what you would score on this new Wonderlic test, set a timer to five minutes and answer the questions as quickly as possible.
Write each of the answers down on a sheet of paper so you can compare them with the answer key (link at the bottom.)

While we greatly differ on prospect rankings, something that should be assumed this early in the process, I see great thought was put into each pick and they all make sense when looked at through your perspective on the players. Great job!
Out of sheer boredom and the upcoming NBA draft has gotten me itching to make a new mock draft. Of course the NFL draft is a whole lot less predictable than the NBA draft, but also provides more success stories than the NBA draft. Again, I used schedules to determine each team's records and if you get upset with me just remember it's June and a whole lot can change by next April.
