NFL Draft 2012: Texas Leads All States With 32 Players Selected

The 2012 NFL Draft is gone, and all that is left to do is analyze teams, assign grades, track undrafted free agents, and do things like examine where most of the players in the draft went to high school. Texas HS Football did just that, and found that the Lone Star State beat all comers.

In their listing of players selected in the 2012 NFL Draft by state, Texas placed first with 32 players selected, followed by Florida with 31 and California with 26. Ohio (18) and Georgia (13) rounded out the top five, and North Carolina (10), Illinois (eight), and Alabama and Washington (seven apiece) all had strong showings.

Texas' domination was helped by six players going in the top 20 of the draft, and three in the top 10. All three of those players — No. 1 pick Andrew Luck, No. 2 pick Robert Griffin III, and No. 8 pick Ryan Tannehill — were quarterbacks.
