I got 45 in 12:44.  I rushed at least two of them.  One is disputable.  The other 2 I just plain didn't know the correct answer.

In certain positions smart helps. Some of the questions on the test would be the equivalent of benching an empty bar.

sure, but I think the football players that score a 19 is the exception. Just like the player that runs a 5.3 or only benches the 225 5 times.

I got a 43, but I was really lazy about it.

IIRC, when I used to follow the draft closely the average was in the low 20s and it was fairly rare to see a number in the 30s, extremely rare to see 40s.  One guy ever scored a 50.  Punter Pat McInally, Hardvard grad.  Also, Fitzy Fitzpatrick, Harvard grad, scored 48.  The link shows the top5 and bottom 5.  Kind of interesting that the top 5 were all relatively high picks and/or successful and the bottom 5 mostly never played in the league.  Now, I'm actually kind of interested in how predictive the Wonderlic score is of NFL success.  i wouldn't have thought it would correlate well but maybe it does.

Looks like there's a pretty clear correlation for QBs, anyway.

That's better than 99.9% of correlations in social sciences.  I'm reclaiming my points.

Smart privilege is real.  Let's pass some laws to make sure smart people don't have an advantage in life.

One of the Patriot’s lineman said he knew all the answers but intentionally scored in the low 30’s as not to be perceived as too smart for some teams.
