NFL Draft Correlations:

Correlations for 253 pro football draftees are up over at Mahalanobis' blog, and we find that smartness (as measured by the mandatory 12-minute Wonderlic IQ test) correlates with strength (benchpress), slowness (40 yard dash time), and lack of leaping ability (vertical leap in inches).

I guess wearing lead boots makes you smarter...

Smartest players by position are Tight Ends, Offensive Linemen, and Quarterbacks. Least smart are Defensive Linemen, Running Backs, Wide Receivers, and Cornerbacks.
