New York,, NY, United States (4E Sports) – The former Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel scored a 32 on the Wonderlic test at February’s NFL scouting combine, according to NFL Network’s Albert Breer.
Manziel scored better than Central Florida’s Blake Bortles who had 28 and Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater scored a 20.
Cornell’s Jeff Mathews had the highest score among quarterbacks with a 40.
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.
Manziel’s 32 potentially boosted his stock among teams.
He is ranked No. 18 overall in ESPN Scouts Inc.’s list of top 32 prospects.
According to ESPN Stats & Information, among the 31 projected 2014 starting quarterbacks who have a reported Wonderlic score, the average is 29.4.
