It makes sense that the higher populated the state, the more NFL players it would produce. But what about the Carolinas? If you had to guess, would you say North Carolina or South Carolina has the most NFL athletes? Well, guess no longer, because the folks at Best Tickets have put together a map that shows us the break down based on each state.
And the winner is….South Carolina.

The other thing that stick out to me is that Florida (186) beat out Texas (147) and Georgia (91) is fourth on the list.
