Matt Corral was the most surprised person in the room when he learned of his 15 score on the Wonderlic test.

Matt Corral thought he might have actually aced the Wonderlic Test. He certainly did not expect to have the lowest reported score of any of the quarterbacks in the 2022 NFL draft.

“I don’t know, I thought I did much better on it. Me personally, I thought I only got like four wrong,” Corral theorized to FanSided.

For those that need a refresher,  the Wonderlic test is a 12-minute, 50-question exam that attempts to figure out whether an athlete has the intelligence required to be successful on the field.

Sometimes the test is on the money like when Tom Brady scored a 33. Other times,  not so much. Quarterbacks like Corral to score 15 include: Dan Marino, Donovan McNabb, Jim Kelly, Terry Bradshaw. That would be three Hall of Famers and one McNabb that believes he belongs in Canton. If Corral needed a confidence boost after learning of his score there it is.

Corral does have at least an idea what might have gone awry.

“I must have filled in the answer sheet wrong,” Corral continued. “I mean, that’s not an excuse but I remember them saying something, if you didn’t fill it out they stopped counting after the one you filled out. So like, your score would be all the way until the one you left blank.”

Seems plausible. Corral skipped a question by accident and hence the low score.

“I mean I had to have done something wrong, because I don’t know how that how that came about. But, you know, if I had an opportunity to take it again I would,” Corral said.

Corral will not have to do that. Some draft experts have him rated as their top quarterback, worst case scenario he will be a Day 2 pick.

Either way he will set his sights on adding his name to the “scored 15 on the Wonderlic had an awesome NFL career list.
