ESPN’s Laura Rutledge provides clarity on Tua Tagovailoa’s wonderlic grade

Marvin Gentry - USA TODAY Sports

Earlier on Friday, the Wonderlic grades for quarterbacks in this draft were made available to the media and per Bob McGinn of The Athletic, Tua Tagovailoa scored a 13. 

While some people were puzzled by this, ESPN’s Laura Rutledge provided clarity on the situation via Twitter.

She said Tagovailoa’s first grade came from when he performed the test at Alabama in 2018.

The native Hawaiian took it again at the NFL Combine and improved. 

His grade of 19 is near the average mark (20) of players; however, it still means nothing on whether or not he will transition well to the pro level.
