Cardale Jones scored a 25 on the Wonderlic, the intelligence test hopeful NFL players take during the draft process, according to Rand Getlin of the NFL Network.
Nobody really knows if a player’s Wonderlic (you can take a sample test here) score actually means anything relative to NFL success, but Jones’ 25 is a solid one.
Fellow NFL quarterback hopeful Carson Wentz reportedly scored a 29. Peyton Manning scored a 28, Ben Roethlisberger scored a 25 and Cam Newton scored a 21. Johnny Manziel scored a 32.
Jones is also reportedly receiving “rave reviews” from the NFL teams he has met with.
And by the way, Cardale Jones got a 25 on his Wonderlic and has gotten rave reviews from NFL teams who have had him in the meeting room.

Jones is clearly one of the most polarizing prospects in the 2016 NFL Draft class. Some people love his upside and others believe he’s a “poor man’s” JaMarcus Russell.
The NFL Draft starts next Thursday at 8 p.m. E.T. on ESPN.
