Report: Justin Herbert, Tua Tagovailoa had better Wonderlic scores than indicated

Justin Herbert

For those who care about Wonderlic scores, it sounds like there were some errors in the initial reporting of this year’s scores among the quarterback class.

It was reported on Friday that Tua Tagovailoa’s score was among the lowest, and Justin Herbert scored a slightly above-average 25. Those two scores were among those that were actually higher than reported, according to Albert Breer of the MMQB.

These scores are a lot better for Herbert, who immediately vaults toward the top of the QB class in terms of Wonderlic score. Tagovailoa’s reported score of 19 is closer to the average than the 13 that was initially reported. It’s not great, but it’s better than it was.

At the end of the day, it’s worth remembering that Wonderlic scores don’t tell us much. Plenty of mediocre quarterbacks have scored highly, while reigning MVP Lamar Jackson scored a 13. It’s just one data point among many when it comes to evaluating a prospect.
