Several NFL analysts jumped the gun on Tua Tagovailoa’s reported score on the Wonderlic test, including ESPN’s Dan Orlovsky, who has since deleted his initial reaction and apologized for this take.

The Wonderlic test is used at the NFL scouting combine to measure general cognitive ability in three areas: math, vocabulary, and reasoning.

The test has 50 multiple choice questions that are to be answered in 12 minutes, with 50 being the highest score.

Insider Laura Rutletdge later explained into detail Tagovailoa’s alarmingly below-average score for a quarterback, but much of the narrative had already been established.

Orlovsky said Tagovailoa’s reported score “bothered” him before questioning the possibility of the former Alabama product being lazy.
