What is the Wonderlic?

The Wonderlic test has been a component of the NFL Scouting Combine for over 40 years. The test was originally used by legendary Cowboys coach Tom Landry as part of their player evaluation and was eventually adopted around the league. While there is still plenty of debate about the value of the Wonderlic, it still seems to make the headlines each year around the Combine and NFL Draft.

About Joe Burrow

Burrow is projected by most draft experts to be one of, if not the top quarterback taken in the NFL Draft. The quarterback class for the 2020 NFL draft class will be one of the more anticipated classes in recent years. Burrow transferred from Ohio State in 2018 after backing up Dwayne Haskins.  In 2019, he led most quarterbacks across the nation in statistical categories. He posted an incredibly high 76% completion rate at 402 completions across 527 attempts. He passed for 5,761 yards and 60 touchdowns while only getting intercepted 6 times. The 60 touchdown number is an NCAA single-season record. Burrow is also a running threat, as he ran for 5 touchdowns and 368 yards.
