What was brett favre's wonderlic score?
Since 1939 employers have used the test developed by Eldon Wonderlic to test potential employees’ cognitive abilities. The U.S. military was one of the first organizations to adopt the test. The Wonderlic test came to the NFL in the 1960s when the Cincinnati Bengals began using it as an evaluation tool for prospective players. It has since become a League standard.
The top score possible on the Wonderlic test is a 50 as there are 50 questions. A score of 21 is considered average. Long time Green Bay Packer Brett Favre scored a 22 as did fellow QB Drew Brees. Peyton Manning scored a 28 while his brother Eli got a 38. Alex Smith, the passer for San Francisco, scored a 40.
The Wonderlic score says a lot about a player, but it doesn’t say everything. Donovan McNabb scored a less-than-average 14. He also went on to win 50 of his first 71 starts—the 4th fastest QB to reach 50 wins in NFL history. He’s also a six time Pro Bowler. On the Wonderlic, QB Dan Marino scored a 15 or 16, depending on the source. He is now in the Hall of Fame. Terry Bradshaw scored 16 points, and then went on to lead his team to four Super Bowl victories.
