I guess Jameis Winston is not a dummy after all. According to Yahoo Sports he did pretty well on the Wonderlic exam.
Multiple league sources told Yahoo Sports that Winston scored a 27 out of 50 on the league’s general aptitude test that is administered at the annual NFL scouting combine prior to the draft. That’s a respectable score for quarterbacks, and just one point shy of the 28 Manning scored prior to the 1998 draft. It also stacks up favorably with several recent Super Bowl winners, including the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees (28), the Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson (28), the Baltimore Ravens’ Joe Flacco (27) and the Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger(25).
