Saquon Barkley Wonderlic Test Score

After back to back sensational seasons at Penn State there’s little doubt that Saquon Barkley will be one of the top five picks in the 2018 NFL draft.

You can see his 2017 statistics further down this page, but Barkley’s numbers at the NFL Scouting Combine were nothing less than eye-popping. Considering the fact that he weighs over 225 pounds, it’s possible no player has ever shown the overall athleticism he displayed during the combine. Here’s a quick rundown of some of his results:

  • 40-yard dash: 4.4 seconds
  • Vertical leap: 41 inches
  • 225-pound bench press: 29 reps

Putting these numbers in perspective, only one running back of his size has ever run a 40-yard dash that fast. No player of his size has ever had a vertical that high and his bench press was actually better than perennial all-pro left tackle Joe Thomas’s number when he was preparing for the draft. In short, this performance is otherworldly and you can see why scouts are so excited about his potential.

Outside of his physical skills, Saquon Barkley likely didn’t impress many with his Wonderlic test score of 18. While a 18 isn’t terrible, it is slightly below average.
