Each year the NFL Scouting Combine and the NFL Draft bring renewed attention to the Wonderlic Test as player scores leak to the press. Over the years this has lead to various levels of media frenzy and scrutiny of both players and teams. We’ll provide a quick brief on all of this year’s top prospects along with updated Wonderlic scores as they become available between the 2019 NFL Combine and the NFL Draft.

2010 NFL Draft ESPN set

Nick Bosa
Wonderlic Score – 23

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Ohio St. Jr EDGE 6’4″ 263

Bosa is the younger brother of NFL Pro Bowler Joey Bosa and displays many of the same traits that have made his brother, also a former Ohio State player, so successful in the NFL.

Quinnen Williams
Wonderlic Score – 11

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Alabama Soph DL 6’4″ 289

Williams was a destructive force for the Tide this past year and scouts are impressed with his ability to wreak havoc in the backfield. 

Josh Allen
Wonderlic Score – 15

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Kentucky Sr EDGE 6’5″ 260

Many scouts consider Allen as the top prospect in the draft. Allen’s physical attributes are off the chart and his ability to harass quarterbacks is at a premium in today’s NFL.

Ed Oliver
Wonderlic Score – 20

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Houston Jr DL 6’3″ 292

While Oliver played outside of the Power 5 conferences (despite being a 5-star recruit) he maintained a high profile throughout his time as a Cougar by using his quickness to consistently beat interior linemen.

Devin White
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
LSU Jr LB 6’1″ 240

In his bowl game against Central Florida, and throughout his Junior season, White displayed the type of sideline to sideline speed that teams are looking for in a modern linebacker.

Clelin Ferrell
Wonderlic Score – 21

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Clemson Jr EDGE 6’4″ 265

After winning the national championship the spotlight was very much on the Clemson defensive line for their dominant performance against the seemingly unstoppable Alabama offense. Ferrell was on NFL radars for years and his senior year provided many highlights.

Rashan Gary
Wonderlic Score – 9

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Michigan Jr DL 6’5″ 283

While his career at Michigan is seen as a disappointment by many and marred by injuries, no one can deny the physical talents of the former number one rated recruit. His potential won’t let him fall out of the first round.

Jonah Williams
Wonderlic Score – 39

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Alabama Jr OL 6’5″ 301

Another solid Alabama prospect on the offensive line. It’s a cliche at this point, but Alabama linemen have proven a solid bet for NFL production.

Greedy Williams
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
LSU Soph CB 6’3″ 182

Williams has elite speed and athleticism to be a lockdown cover corner that NFL teams want. Perhaps most importantly, at 6’3″ he can match up against receivers that smaller corners have no chance against.

Dwayne Haskins
Wonderlic Score – 25

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Ohio St. Soph QB 6’3″ 220

After a record-breaking season at Ohio State, Haskins looks to be the top passer on the board for most teams in the 2019 draft.

Montez Sweat
Wonderlic Score – 19

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Miss. State Sr EDGE 6’6″ 245

Montez Sweat looks like a defensive end and he plays aggressively from the outside. This is a player who performed well against elite competition and shows all of the attributes necessary to be a very effective NFL player.

Christian Wilkins
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Clemson Sr DL 6’4″ 315

A destructive force on the inside for the Tigers during his entire career, Wilkins is a prototypical interior defensive lineman that any team would be happy to have.

Deandre Baker
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Georgia Sr CB 5’11” 185

Georgia’s turnaround under Kirby Smart can largely be pinned on maximizing the talents of elite players like Deandre Baker who made the Bulldogs defense a force to be reckoned with the past two seasons.

Jachai Polite
Wonderlic Score – 17

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Florida Jr EDGE 6’2″ 242

While shorter than the typical edge rusher, Polite’s quickness causes serious matchup problems for tackles and his production in college speaks for itself.

Byron Murphy
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Washington Soph CB 5’11” 182

A can’t miss prospect coming into the University of Washington, Murphy didn’t disappoint while with the Huskies. The second-team All-American led his team to a Rose Bowl berth and nabbed four interceptions in his final college season. 

D.K. Metcalf
Wonderlic Score – 17

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Ole Miss Soph WR 6’4″ 230

Many pundits think that Metcalf will be the first receiver selected in the draft. He’s an ideal mix of size and speed who does a good job of running his routes and catching anything in his neighborhood.

Josh Jacobs
Wonderlic Score – 20

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Alabama Jr RB 5’10” 216

A rare “lightly heralded” high school prospect, Jacobs is entering the draft early as one of the top running backs on the board. Not as shifty as some of the other backs available, Jacobs is good at lowering his head and getting tough yards, which makes him valuable in short yard situations.

Jeffery Simmons
Wonderlic Score – 14

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Miss. State Jr DL 6’4″ 300

Despite a torn ACL, Simmons is still seen as a first round pick due to his film. He was an immovable object on the Mississippi State defensive line this past season and there’s no question he’s still a hot commodity.

Jawaan Taylor
Wonderlic Score – 20

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Florida Jr OL 6’5″ 328

A hamstring injury kept Taylor out of the NFL Combine, but his film shows a prototypical NFL tackle in terms of size and physical skills. 

T.J. Hockenson
Wonderlic Score – 22

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Iowa Soph TE 6’5″ 250

One of two blue-chip tight end prospects on the Hawkeyes roster, Hockenson was the Mackey Award winner as the nation’s top tight end. 

Kyler Murray
Wonderlic Score – 20

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Oklahoma Jr QB 5’10” 195

After an incredible campaign with the Sooners that saw him making the College Football Playoff, Murray decided to forgo his baseball career and throw his hat into the NFL Draft.

Cody Ford
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Oklahoma Jr OL 6’4″ 338

Ford is an interesting tweener prospect as he has the skills to play tackle, but may well slot into the guard spot in the NFL. It will be interesting to see where he ends up playing more snaps.

Devin Bush
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Michigan Jr LB 5’11” 233

Another great example of a modern sideline to sideline linebacker, Bush was a tackling machine in each of the last two seasons for the Wolverines. 

Deionte Thompson
Wonderlic Score – N/A

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Alabama Jr S 6’2″ 196

While some scouts wanted to see more production out of Thompson this past season at Alabama, his physical tools are undeniable and make him a top prospect.

Dre’Mont Jones
Wonderlic Score – 20

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Ohio St. Jr DL 6’3″ 286

An interior pass rushing demon, the knock on Jones is that he may not be able to stand up against the run without adding more size.

Noah Fant
Wonderlic Score – 25

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Iowa Jr TE 6’5″ 241

An absolutely freakish athlete at the tight end spot, Fant projects as an absolute matchup nightmare, which is precisely what he was the past two seasons for the Hawkeyes.

Marquise Brown
Wonderlic Score – 21

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Oklahoma Jr WR 5’10” 168

As college football offense moves increasingly towards getting the ball to playmakers in space, Marquise Brown was given the opportunity to shine in the Sooners’ wide-open offense and the NFL definitely took notice.

A.J. Brown
Wonderlic Score – 18

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Ole Miss Jr WR 6’1″ 230

The second Rebel wide receiver on this list, Brown is an NFL ready talent in terms of polish as a wide receiver.

Drew Lock
Wonderlic Score – 26

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Missouri Sr QB 6’4″ 225

Lock is a more traditional quarterback than someone like Kyler Murray, and despite some rough patches with an up and down Missouri squad, he’s still an intriguing early-round prospect.

Brian Burns
Wonderlic Score – 22

SCHOOL YEAR POS HT WT
Florida St. Jr EDGE 6’5″ 235

Burns is a bit of a question mark as he possesses elite speed off the edge, but may not have the size or strength to make an impact early in his career.
