The Wonderlic scores are reportedly out for draft-eligible quarterbacks and there's one that stands out from the rest.

Western Kentucky's Bailey Zappe had the highest known score of 35. In his final season at the school, Zappe finished with 5,967 passing yards and 62 touchdowns.

Second on the list is North Carolina's Sam Howell, who finished with a score of 34. Howell is projected to go in the second or third round of the draft but could slide into the first if a team likes him enough.

Malik Willis, Carson Strong, and Desmond Ridder round out the top five with scores of 32, 22, and 19 respectively.

The test is time-based and is believed to measure mental processing power. That said, it's still unclear if teams put a strong emphasis on it in the draft process.

The NFL world had some fascinating reactions to these results.

Chances are, these scores won't impact how each quarterback does in the NFL, but you never truly know.
