Greg McElroy is not the most talented quarterback in the NFL Draft, but the former University of Alabama signal-caller could be the sharpest after reportedly scoring 48 out of 50 on the Wonderlic Test, the Fort-Worth Star Telegram reported Monday.
The former national championship winner narrowly missed becoming the second player in history to ace the cognitive-ability test. Former Harvard grad Pat McInally, who went on to punt for the Bengals from 1976 to 1985, is believed to be the only player to ever register a perfect score.

However, two NFL scouts told NBC's Pro Football Talk that they doubt the accuracy of the original report, saying it is highly unlikely that the scores could be known at this point. McElroy's father, Greg McElroy Sr., said his son did score a 48, according to the The Birmingham News.
