McElroy confirmed he got a 48 on the Wonderlic Test. He said he only filled out 49 of 50 questions. There was a question with the vocabulary words “furtive” and “whimsical” and he didn’t know what either meant.
McElroy said that he’s not worried that scoring so high could be viewed as a negative. “People really do over-analyze the Wonderlic,” McElroy said. “But they wouldn’t give it to us if it didn’t matter.
McElroy said that his high score could pay off when his football career is over.
McElroy is optimistic about his chances of doing well on draft day. “I think I will get drafted higher than a lot of people suggest,” McElroy said.
Dan asked who has more NFL potential, him or Cam Newton.
“I say me,” McElroy said. “My talent level has a much lower ceiling than Cam. … Five years down the road will he be a more productive player. That remains to be seen.”
