How NCAA players score on the Wonderlic

 
In September 2005, the Wall Street Journal looked at how prospects from NCAA Division I schools scored on the Wonderlic Personnel Test, a standardized test administered as part of the NFLs scouting combine. To qualify for the list, a school had to have at least 21 alums with reported Wonderlic scores over the past seven years. The exam has been given to millions of job seekers in dozens of fields, and the average score across the broader population is 21.

* Graduation rates, reported by schools to the NCAA, are for football players entering as freshmen from 1994 to 1997 and graduating within six years.

Wall Street Journal's methodology: Wonderlic scores were drawn from published reports, websites and NFL insiders and were spot-checked with agents, scouting experts and teams. Most undrafted college players and veterans who took the test before 1999 are not included. Some players scores are an average of multiple tests.
