Map shows where every 2016 first round pick played in high school


The first round of the 2016 NFL Draft has come and gone. Many of these talented players come from all walks of life and were great players from high school all the way to when their names were called by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

SportSourceAnalytics decided to show these different walks of life when they shared a map of where the players played their high school football. Not surprisingly, Florida produced the most with seven players having called the state home during their high school days.

It should come as no surprise that the three players that played their college football in Texas also played high school in the state, despite it showing Josh Doctson as going to Wyoming. He played his freshman season there before transferring back home to TCU.

Another interesting note is that 70 percent of the players drafted last night were four or five star prospects out of high school. Those rankings might not seem like they matter much, but it certainly made a difference last night.
