The new aptitude test is not a replacement for the Wonderlic, which has been used for decades since the exam was introduced in the 1970s by former Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry.
National Football Scouting president Jeff Foster said the league spent time developing the new test with a university professor, according to the report.
The Wonderlic is an exam given to players entering the NFL draft every year.
It is comprised of 50 questions, and players have 12 minutes to complete the test. The average score is a 21.
The NFL combine is Feb. 23-26 at Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis.
