Thousands of NFL hopefuls have taken the Wonderlic intelligence test to get a sense of how they think, but teams differ when it comes to gauging its significance

Dusty Dvoracek doesn't have his name on a plaque commemorating the event. His parents probably didn't even put a memento of it on the refrigerator. But he is still something of a legend in NFL combine history for earning a 41 on the Wonderlic intelligence test two years ago, the highest score of any player in his class.

The question is how much, if anything, it meant.

The Wonderlic is a 50-question test taken under a 12-minute time limit. It consists of numerical, analytical and spatial-relations questions intended to measure a player's ability to think on his feet, follow directions and make effective decisions under pressure. It was created 71 years ago, has been administered to more than 150 million people and has been used in the NFL since 1968. Full Story – Tribune
