It's here! Today's the day! Yes, you can have and keep your 40-yard dashes, bench presses, shuttle runs, and interviews-- when it comes time for the NFL Draft, there's one figure that truly matters:
The infamous Wonderlic test.
Officially known as the
Oooh, Kyler Murray... that's rough, man. Did you ask to re-take it like Ryan Finley did?
In any event, props to NC State's Finley and Washington State's Gardner Minshew, who were both up above 40 correct answers on the 50-question multiple-choice test.

But does their score indicate how they'll perform in the NFL?https://t.co/PLinlJfPeR
Murray is expected to be the first college QB off the board, with Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins, Missouri's Drew Lock, and Duke's Daniel Jones all gunning for a spot in the top 10 to 15 picks. Far more data points will be gauged than simply the results of a multiple-choice test, but if teams are content to split hairs, they just got way more fodder to work with.
