Brian Lewerke scored a 30 on the Wonderlic test at the NFL Draft Combine


Updated on 04/18/2020 at 7 p.m. ET:

Albert Breer, a senior NFL reporter for the Monday Morning Quarterback and the NFL Network, said the Wonderlic test results published by Bob McGinn of The Athletic were incorrect. According to Breer’s information, Lewerke actually scored five more points in the Wonderlic test, scoring a 30.

This puts him six points ahead of the average score for the quarters that take the test.

Here is Breer’s report with the correction:

Original message:

In February, former Michigan State Football QB Brian Lewerke attended the NFL combine where he, along with other quarterbacks and an offensive line, took the Wonderlic Contemporary test. While these scores are meant to be kept confidential, many have been published by Bob McGinn of The Athletic. In his NFL Draft preview of the quarterfinals, McGinn revealed that Lewerke scored 25 in the test.

The Wonderlic test is used in the NFL Draft combines to test the cognitive abilities of quarterbacks and offensive liners in three areas: vocabulary, reasoning and math.

The average score for a football player is supposed to be 20, while the average score for a quarterback is 24, which puts Lewerke just above average.

Nate Stanley of Iowa led all QBs with a score of 40, Jake Fromm of Georgia was 35 and Joe Burrow was 34. Tua Tagovailoa of Alabama could have undermined his high expectations with a score of 13.
