Iowa’s Nate Stanley reportedly posts highest Wonderlic score among QBs
The Wonderlic scores for many of this year’s draft prospects have been released, and Nate Stanley came out on top among the quarterbacks.
Bob McGinn, who covers the NFL Draft and Green Bay Packers for The Athletic, released the Wonderlic scores for many prospects as he does every year.
According to McGinn, former Iowa quarterback Nate Stanley tested the highest among the 2020 draft quarterbacks with a 40. Former Alabama quarterbacks Jalen Hurts (16) and Tua Tagovailoa (13) tested the lowest.
Tua Tagovailoa only scored 13 on his wonderlic exam – the lowest among all QBs.

Just a reminder: the Wonderlic score means very little when it comes to football. Lamar Jackson just won MVP and scored a 13, so if anything, that may be a good sign for Tua!
Here were the wide receiver scores, according to McGinn:

Let me say this too: I would take Jerry Jeudy in two seconds if I could. The Wonderlic scores are just a small part of the picture when it comes to a prospect — a very small part.
