The wonderlic test scores for the top quarterbacks in the 2018 NFL draft have been released, and Josh Allen was well above everybody else.
The scores are as follows, according to NFL scout John Middlekauff:
- Josh Allen 37
- Josh Rosen 29
- Sam Darnold 28
- Baker Mayfield 25
- Lamar Jackson 13
On his latest podcast, former NFL scout @JohnMiddlekauff revealed the Wonderlic scores for some of the big time QBs:
Josh Allen 37
Josh Rosen 29
Sam Darnold 28
Baker Mayfield 25
Lamar Jackson 13

A wonderlic score doesn’t determine everything, but it’s a bit surprising that nobody even got close to Allen. He’s none points above second place, and he nearly tripled Lamar Jackson’s embarrassing 13. How do you score a 13? Did his pen run out of ink? Totally unacceptable.
Also, very surprised not a single one of them was able to crack a 40. After all, I scored a 47 when I took the practice version of the test. You’d think at least one of the top five quarterbacks would be able to get near an internet blogger. I guess that’s just too high of an expectation these days. Sad!
Overall, this really shouldn’t change much. The Browns are almost certainly still taking Darnold first overall. It’s highly unlikely they see these wonderlic scores, and all of a sudden drop Darnold in favor of Allen. It’s not going to happen.
