Its a bit of a loaded question, but the "study" part of preparation of American football is far far more rigorous. Whether that means smarter is subjective. American football players at all positions are required to remember literally 100s of variations of plays and how those plays relate to 100s of possible counter plays and formations by the opposing side. ABout a 1000 hours of film study take place each year. I might also note American football players have to go to college for a minimum of two years and are intelligence tested before being drafted. Again how that equates to intelligence is subjective.
