About Patrick Mahomes

Pat Mahomes played his College football at Texas A&M, where he was known for putting up big stats through the air and on the ground. Mahomes won the starter position his freshman year, and had impressive numbers for both his Freshman and Sophomore seasons. However, his Junior season was his most impressive year and caught the eye of many NFL scouts. He threw for 5052 yards, 41 passing touchdowns, 12 rushing touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also proved to be a more composed quarterback, recognizing open receivers, controlling the tempo of his offense and consistently making accurate throws.

Mahomes also seems to have the talent required at the NFL level and shows a great deal of promise as a starter in the NFL. His arm strength may be the best in this year’s quarterback class, and he has been known to throw bullets to receivers in tight windows (which will only get tighter in the NFL). In fact he is known to throw 93 mph fastballs as a baseball pitcher.

With most college quarterback being drafted, there will be many adjustments that Mahomes will need to make at the NFL level. Many of the plays he ran in college, including screens, quick passes and quarterback runs, will not be reliable in the NFL. While Mahomes was excellent at scrambling and extending the play, he will now be up against the strongest and fastest defensive football players in the world. He will need to learn the fine line at the NFL level of when to scramble and how to avoid costly sacks or interceptions when under pressure.

About the Wonderlic Test

The Wonderlic test is a cognitive ability test given to all participants of the NFL Scouting Combine. All test takers must complete the entire 50 question test in under 12 minutes, meaning they are given only about 14 seconds per question. Questions are similar to what you would expect to find on an IQ test and calculators are not allowed to solve math related questions. take a sample test blue callout copy

While many argue that it is not a good measure of future success for all position players, many consider it to be particularly important for quarterbacks. Because good quarterbacks at the NFL level must memorize opposing defensive players and schemes along with knowing their own offensive information, some form of cognitive ability testing seems appropriate for the position. Because the Wonderlic is a test of both smarts and quick thinking, it also seems appropriate for a football position that demands the ability to think fast.
