Georgia's Matthew Stafford stands out with NFL Wonderlic score

March 22, 2009

A poor score on the Wonderlic test can threaten a player's draft stock. The test, which measures problem-solving ability, features 50 questions and a 12-minute time limit. Test-takers are given one point for each correct answer. This year no player hurt himself terribly with a poor Wonderlic score. Here are some of the more interesting results.

Quarterbacks: With his pro day workout last week, Georgia's Matthew Stafford showed himself to be in a class by himself, and he also was in a class by himself among the top quarterbacks with regards to the Wonderlic. He scored 38. USC's Mark Sanchez scored 28 and Kansas State's Josh Freeman 27. All are acceptable scores for quarterbacks.

Wide receivers: NFL teams would like for receivers' test scores to be about 18, but several of the top prospects fell below that mark. Michael Crabtree of Texas Tech scored 15, Darrius Heyward-Bey of Maryland scored 14, Percy Harvin of Florida scored 12 and Hakeem Nicks of North Carolina scored 11. The test result is particularly interesting in the case of Harvin, who will have more learning to do than the others based on the offense he played in at Florida and the fact he could be used in multiple roles. Jeremy Maclin of Missouri was outstanding by comparison with a 25 test score.

Offensive tackles: None of the tackles were too far off the acceptable mark. Andre Smith of Alabama scored 17, which is borderline. Faring much better was Arizona's Eben Britton with 31. Others: Eugene Monroe of Virginia had 24, Jason Smith of Baylor 23 and Michael Oher of Mississippi 19.

Linebackers: Three linebackers from USC could be chosen in the first round, but probably not in the order of their Wonderlic scores. Clay Matthews scored 27, Brian Cushing 23 and Rey Maualuga 15. Maualuga's score is slightly troubling considering he likely will be a middle linebacker who is asked to call the defenses.

Defensive backs: Two scores stood out. Maryland cornerback Kevin Barnes scored 41, and Western Michigan safety Louis Delmas scored 12. One front office man said he was not concerned about Delmas' score because he plays smart. Delmas still could be the first safety chosen.

As a point of reference I believe Ben Roethlisberger scored a 25 and Carson Palmer scored a 26 on the test.

Also after hearing Jeremy Maclin in interviews, I'm not surprised he scored that high. He is a really impressive individual...

I read somewhere that TSuggs and RayRay scored a 16.

Not sure which had the 9 and which had the 7.

I'm talking about before the NFL... is it color by numbers? Do they have a "seeing eye person" in college who walks them through their day to day?

I went to U of Tennessee for a year in 1991-2.. I had an english class with the star RB...
Reggie Cobb...he just sat there... he had a glazed look on his face like...

:wft this was not part of the deal...

I know these are downplayed quite a bit but if you look at VInce Young, I'm under the impression he scored terribly low, he certainly has had a hard time adjusting to the NFL. I wonder what Kordel Stewart's wonderlic was?

Thought Eugene Monroe might be higher being from Virginia...those guys tend to stand out in a really good way IIRC.

If anyone finds a list of PSU players' scores could you please post that? I have had class with a large number of those guys and would be interested in seeing how they all stack up on the basic reasoning skills.

Sad, but true.

I won't go any further with this line as it is a "family board".
