Rich Eisen Is Smarter Than Your Average NFL Prospect

Monday, February 23, 2009

One of my favorite things to come out of the NFL Scouting Combine, are the Wonderlic test results. The test is supposed to assess the aptitude of a person based on learning and problem-solving, and is given across multiple professions. The highest score you can get is a 50, with the national average is 20 (not just NFL scores), and the all-time high for an NFLer was a perfect score by Harvard grad, Pat McInally. On the other end, the all-time low was a 3 for eventual Ravens' pick, Roderick Green.

The NFL Network's Rich Eisen decided to try his hand at the test, and here were the highlights and result....

A 35 is a pretty good score. That number puts him in with the likes of Aaron Rodgers, Matt Leinart, and is actually better than every rookie who took the test last season. Good work, Rich.

And 3x as smart as Dan Marino too! Of course, Alex Smith could outwit him in a Princess Bride-style showdown. But I'm willing to bet even Eisen is better at football than Alex Smith...
