The talk around the quarterbacks in this draft class continues as we are under a week away from the start of round one. While this is considered a weak class at the quarterback position, at least two are expected to go in the first round and potentially up to four depending on how teams view them.

For UNC quarterback Sam Howell, he’s seeing his draft stock slip a bit and he went from a first-round pick to now a Day 2 pick.

On Friday, one aspect of the predraft process was released as the quarterback Wonderlic scores are now out. Andrew Fillipponi of 937 The Fan in Pittsburgh has the Wonderlic scores for the quarterback position and Howell’s was among the best at the position, finishing with a 34:

Only Western Kentucky’s Bailey Zapper scored higher with a 35, as Howell finished second. Malik Willis, who could be the first QB off the board, had a 32 and after that it’s a bit of a dropoff.

Now, the Wonderlic really doesn’t mean much in all honesty and there was talk that it is even going away soon. It’s just a number for scouts and coaches to potentially evaluate prospects. So take it for what it’s worth.
