The Wonderlic Test has long been the lone aptitude test for NFL prospects, but that will change this year. The league will reportedly add a second test to be used at the scouting combine later this week in Indianapolis.
According to Albert Breer of NFL.com, the second test was devised by the league and a university professor. The hope is that the test will be "a little more evolved than the Wonderlic," National Football Scouting president Jeff Foster told Breer.
The Wonderlic Test, which has been around for decades, has been oft-criticized throughout the years for such things as having a limited scope and being biased against minorities. Beyond that, there have been ethical questions, especially with regards to scores being leaked.
Nevertheless, both tests will be used to evaluate prospects' mental capabilities, at least for this year.
