Which state has produced the most elite NFL talent?

Of course this gives a little more support to your MS argument. Below is a map of total NFL players by home state (the darkest being the most common)


But HERE is the map that looks at players PER CAPITA, and in this situaiton MS looks a lot stronger.

check the HOF and see where the players were born
NJ on the rise. Have had players like Anthony Davis, Knowshon, Victor Cruz, Malcolm Jenkins, Kyle Wilson, and many others come up.
Pennsylvania - for QB's anyway.

QB's:

Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas, Joe Namath, Dan Marino, George Blanda, Jim Kelly, Rich Gannon, Kerry Collins, Bruce Gradkowski, Babe Parelli, Johnny Lujack, Steve Bono, Matt Shaub, Charlie Batch, and our WORST first rounder - ever - Jim Suckenmiller.

Others:

Ralph Tamm, Herb Aderly - HOF, Matt Barr, Kevan Barlow, Fred Beletnikoff-HOF, Todd Christense-HOF, Jack Ham-HOF, Larry Johnson, Leroy Kelly-HOF, and some current guys like Brandon Marshall, Paul Posluszny and Marvin Harrison.

Yeah I forgot PN too. But otherwise this is pretty much the list. IL has had some too.

The list is really the big states if you look at it. Even the maps. Big states have more people. More people = more kids. More kids = more kids in sports programs to choose from. Thus more potential good ones. TX, FL, CA in particular have almost a religion surrounding high school football. It's just huge and very important. There are many long time established coaching programs that turn out the best year after year. Plus huge student populations also feed into that.

Hands down CA, then TX and FL. States where outside sports cab be played year round.
St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., had nine graduates on NFL Kickoff Weekend rosters, topping the list of high schools with the most players on opening week NFL rosters.

The totals are based on the 1,691 men on Kickoff Weekend rosters, including those both active and inactive.

NFL players hail from 1,382high schools in 47 states and the District of Columbia, four international countries and one U.S. territory (American Samoa).


HOME STATES: California tops the list of states with the most NFL players (207), followed by Texas (200) and Florida (189):
