Last of a nine-part series

Today we highlight the top 21 scores in the Wonderlic test, regardless of position, given at the Combine recently in Indianapolis.

The Wonderlic test is a 12-minute, 50-question test commonly given to NFL prospects as a measure of intelligence, designed to test learning and problem-solving skills. Questions increase in difficulty, so few prospects finish all 50 questions, and players are instructed before the test to answer the questions sequentially.
