Do you not think that if they had information saying otherwise they would report it? And regardless, I still don't think it matters.

The test actually is designed to test how "quickly" you process information under pressure. The actual questions are very easy and basic. The challenge is doing it under pressure and time constraints.

Has any player refused to take it? If the results are "leaked" (more like published) I'm surprised I've not heard of a player refusing to take it.

It didn't seem to hurt Gamble though. Sometimes I think kids aren't prepped properly for these things.

The only preparation anyone should need to score above a 4 is "Hey, you're about to take the wonderlic."

For any one who doesn't want to be dumber than a wonderlic score of 4... should read this.

page 22 is quite interesting.

Other within position correlations yielded notable results. For tight ends and defensive

backs, GMA had a significant negative relationship with performance. Although the magnitude

of these relationships was modest, they could be explained by the notion that performance for

these positions entails more of an emphasis on physical ability and instinct than GMA. A

defensive back high in GMA but lacking the requisite physical abilities may take too much time

thinking about the play instead of reacting to the play. Based on these results, it may be

worthwhile for NFL teams to deemphasize WPT score performance for these positions

(especially defensive backs) when making selection decisions.

GMA=General Mental Ability.

I know what it is, but in the past, has it had any effect on how good or bad NFL players are at the next level?

So basically....reacting instead of thinking is a positive when it comes to a CB

This is what the research would suggest.

You don't need to be prepped, Do you remember when they had the take your own wonderlic? I took me three minutes and i got a 45 you literally have to be deficient to score that low.
