Bonus List

STATES WITH THE MOST NFL DRAFT PICKS THAT WENT TO THEIR HIGH SCHOOLS (PER CAPITA, 1990-2008)

The South clearly leads (per capita) in producing football players who would eventually become draft picks. New England is at the other extreme--two states, Maine and Vermont, had no draft picks who originally went to their high schools. California was #1 (among total draft picks) at 648, but on a per capita basis, it was only #15. Data are for 1990-2008 (years available) and came from the ESPN website.
