Could you pass the NFL’s Wonderlic Test?

Like we said on Friday's Fanatic Radio (2/21), we asked America if they would be willing to take the NFL's Wonderlic test. Basically, the Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test is a standardized test that measures player’s aptitude for learning and problem solving. The test consists of 50 multiple choice questions to be answered in 12 minutes. 

The score is calculated on the number of correct answers in the time allowed. The test consists of English, reading, math and logic problems that increase in difficultly as the test progresses.

According to Sports Illustrated Paul Zimmerman's book The New Thinking Man's Guide to Pro Football, the average score of a NFL player is around 20 points. Score by position are:
  • Offensive tackles – 26
  • Centers – 25
  • Quarterbacks – 24
  • Guards – 23
  • Tight Ends – 22
  • Safeties – 19
  • Middle linebackers – 19
  • Cornerbacks – 18
  • Wide receivers – 17
  • Fullbacks – 17  
  • Halfbacks – 16
