NFL aptitude test changing

Posted:

The NFL is planning to introduce a new aptitude test for this year's Scouting Combine.  FOXSports.com says the new test will be used in addition to the Wonderlic test that the league has been using for more than 40 years.

The Wonderlic test is 50 questions long and must be completed in 12 minutes.  The final score is equal to the number of correct answers.  The test has taken harsh criticism in the past from players that argue the questions have little to do with football.

Only one player — former Bengals punter Pat McInally — has ever recorded a perfect 50 on the Wonderlic. The highest scores among active players belong to Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and Browns tight end Benjamin Watson, both of whom scored 48.

But the Wonderlic's notoriety is largely due to the players who recorded its lowest scores, which include a 4 by current Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne and 6 by 49ers running back Frank Gore.

If you would like to see how you measure up to NFL players on the Wonderlic Test.  Check out this website.
