The Wonderlic Test

April is the time of the pro football draft–a time when the physical performance of pro football candidates is closely measured and compared. But the testing doesn't stop at the bench press and broad jump. Players are also administered a unique intelligence measurement called the Wonderlic Personnel Test. The test is a sort of IQ test used to measure players' aptitude for learning and problem solving. The possible score range is 1 to 50. The average football player scores around 20 points and scoring at least 10 points suggests a person is literate.

Now you have the opportunity to determine your own intelligence score. Best of all, you are compared to top pro football players—from Vince Young who barely scraped by with a 6 to former punter Pat McInally who has the only perfect score on the Wonderlic in league history.
