Wonderlic Sample Test 2011: NFL Combine Test Results, Not a Reliable Measure for Football IQ?

The Wonderlic Sample Test 2011 is once again making the rounds as NFL Scouting Combine has its players tested for their football IQs. Sports sites reported February 28.

This IQ test was created in the 1930s by Eldon Wonderlic and has since then been used to measure how “smart” the 2011 NFL Combine players are.

There are reports though through the years that those with high scores, do not necessarily perform well and vice-versa. This led to the skepticism of some about the results of the Wonderlic Sample Test.

Greg McElroy has allegedly scored an almost perfect score with his 48 correct answers over the 50- item IQ test. It is supposed to measure the cognitive ability of the NFL players.

This is a Wonderlic Sample Test:

A physical education class has 3 times as many girls as boys. During a class basketball game, the girls average 18 points each, and the class, as a whole, averages 17 points per person. How many points does each boy score on average?

Some sports-minded people doubted the reliability of the Wonderlic test results and had suggested that the IQ test be discounted.
