New York Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is likely one of the smartest guys in the league. As evidence, he's a graduate of Harvard and scored a 48 out of 50 on the Wonderlic test.

Those two feats are impressive by themselves, but put them together and Fitzpatrick is obviously a sharp guy. Yet, even though he dominated the Wonderlic when he came into the league, he despises it.

"Yeah, I would say the Wonderlic is probably the one I least like answering," Fitzpatrick said on the Dan Le Batard Show, via

When Fitzpatrick finished the test, it was rumored that he got a perfect score. That wasn't the case, and Fitzpatrick shared his side of the story.

"So, I come out of the test, and I think NFL Network, or somebody, I don't even know if they were around back then. ESPN maybe came up and said 'It's been reported you got a 50.' And it's not like you take the test and they give you your score," he said. "I said 'I left one blank, so I definitely didn't get a 50.' So then it was reported I got a 49. Again, everybody's trying to paint the picture. The myth was drawn of all the different test scores."

Even though he didn't score a 50, 48 is extremely impressive. And it's obvious Fitzpatrick is happy he never has to take that darn test again.
