Johnny Manziel reportedly scored a 32 on the Wonderlic test at February’s NFL scouting combine, potentially boosting his stock among teams considering selecting the former Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner in the first round.

NFL Network’s Albert Breer tweeted out the scores of some top quarterback prospects, reporting that Manziel scored a 32, while Central Florida’s Blake Bortles scored a 28 and Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater scored a 20. Cornell’s Jeff Mathews had the highest score among quarterbacks with a 40. Breer did not report on the scores of any other quarterbacks available in May’s draft.
The Wonderlic is a 50-question test administered to all combine participants that measures cognitive ability. The time limit is 12 minutes. A score of 20 is indicative of “average” intelligence and roughly equivalent to an IQ of 100. Former Bengals punter Pat McInally, who attended Harvard, is the only prospect known to have scored a perfect 50 on the test.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, among the 31 projected 2014 starting quarterbacks who have a reported Wonderlic score, the average is 29.4. The Chiefs’ Alex Smith has the highest (40). The Colts’ Andrew Luck and 49ers’ Colin Kaepernick share the highest score (37) of quarterbacks drafted in the past three seasons.
Manziel is ranked No. 18 overall in ESPN Scouts Inc.’s list of top 32 prospects. Both ESPN’s Todd McShay and Mel Kiper have the Minnesota Vikings picking him eighth overall in their latest mock drafts.
