Texas is number one!



April 30, 2020

Texas leads the nation in drafted players

      Thirty-eight states, as well as Washington, D.C. had at least one player drafted, but we're number one! Texas leads all states in drafted players for the first time since 2016, when they had 32 players selected. Texas had 33 players drafted this year. California was a distant second at 22.

Texas led all states with seven first-round selections. Florida followed with four players selected in Round 1.

For the 14th time in the past 15 seasons, at least one player who attended high school outside of the United States was selected in the NFL Draft [WR Chase Claypool (British Columbia) and DL Neville Gallimore (Ontario)].

Hawaii, the state with the most players were capita in 2020, had a player selected in the NFL Draft for the first time since 2016, when they had three players selected.

IMG Academy is the first high school since 2014 (Saint Thomas Aquinas – Fort Lauderdale, Fla.) to have four players selected in a single NFL Draft.

The 18 high schools with multiple players selected are the most in a single NFL Draft since at least 2012.
