Some NFL teams actually look at the Wonderlic exam, and it does give you a little bit of a feeling of how smart the player is you are dealing with. Since the draft process began, one player that has been badmouthed by everyone is Robert Nkemdiche. They sit here and say that he is not a smart kid and makes dumb decisions. That may be the case, but this Wonderlic Score shows a little different. Nkemdiche doubled the score of DeForest Buckner who is projected as a top 5 pick. He also had a better score than Kevid Dodd, and Shaq Lawson of Clemson.

While it means nothing to many, it means that Nkemdiche is not as dumb as experts think.
