Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara scored a 24 on his Wonderlic test, the highest among NFL draft running back prospects, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.
LSU’s Leonard Fournette and Florida State’s Dalvin Cook, meanwhile, both scored 11 on the test, which has a maximum score of 50.
The Wonderlic test is administered annually at the NFL Scouting Combine and is an IQ test that measures aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving. It is not solely used by the NFL and the league does not make the scores public, though they always seem to be leaked.
The test has 50 questions and is timed at 12 minutes. A 20 is considered an average intelligence score, while a 10 indicates that the participant is literate.
Other notable running backs’ scores includes Stanford’s Christian McCaffrey scoring a 21 and Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon scoring a 12.
