Johnny Manziel is touted as one of the hottest prospects in this year's NFL draft due to his impressive displays with the football.

But it seems he isn't lacking in the brains department either.

It emerged today that the former Texas A&M signal caller performed exceptionally well in the Wonderlic test - an test used by NFL teams to assess prospects' decision-making skills.

As reperted by San Francisco radio host,John Middlekauff, he scored higher than any of his rival QBs in the test, producing an above average score in the process:

"The average wonderlic score for a starting QB in '12 was 29, anything above 30 is outstanding. Johnny scored above both numbers," Middlekauff Tweeted today.

And it looks like Manziel's score was no fluke with the young quarterback having impressed a number of NFL teams with his intelligence during official visits in recent weeks.

If Manziel's score is indeed over the 30 point mark, that puts him ahead of legendary QB Peyton Manning (scored 28), and in the realms of the scores posted by the likes of Tom Brady (33), Andrew Luck (37), and Eli Manning (39).
