The 2020 NFL draft sits just under a week away and teams are doing their final preparations for a unique event.

This year's draft will be virtual, with coaches, general managers and scouts staying at home. It will be an interesting draft and one that will likely include a few surprising picks.

Every year in the lead-up to the draft, Wonderlic scores are released. The Wonderlic is the long-time assessment test the NFL uses for its draft prospects. It's comprised of 50 questions that are designed to test a player.

On Friday afternoon, the Wonderlic scores for the draft's quarterback prospects were released. Former Iowa standout Nate Stanley took home the top score - with a 40 (out of 50).

Here's the full list from NFL insider Bob McGinn of the Athletic:

Former LSU quarterback, and likely No. 1 pick, Joe Burrow received the third-highest score among quarterbacks with a 34. On the opposite end of the spectrum, former Alabama star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa received the lowest score. He received a 13 on the test, according to the report. Update: According to ESPN's Laura Rutledge, Tagovailoa actually took the test twice. The first score, a 13, was from the spring of 2018. He took the test later again at another point and scored a 19. Rutledge says there are "no concerns" from NFL teams.

It's unclear how much stock teams continue to put in the test. Dan Marino and Jim Kelly reportedly scored a 16 and 15 respectively back in 1983. Both went on to illustrious NFL careers.
