Ah, the mysteries of the Wonderlic Test. Pat McInally of Harvard is the only NFL Draft prospect to ever achieve a perfect score of 50 on the Wonderlic Test, the famous aptitude test administered to former college football players vying to impress NFL scouts at the Draft Scouting Combine. Boston College graduate/workout warrior/NFL bust Mike Mamula reportedly scored 49 on the Wonderlic test. Ryan Fitzpatrick, also a Harvard graduate and the Buffalo Bills starting QB, scored 48 in just nine minutes.
Former member of the New England Patriots and current Cleveland Browns tight end Benjamin Watson also scored a 48, tied with Fitzpatrick for highest among current NFL players.
On the other side of the spectrum, Dan Marino scored a 16 and Vince Young tied him on his second test try, after sources confirmed his previously reported Wonderlic test score of six to be erroneous.
