Does Texas produce the most NFL talent? According to a study by BeenVerified, we do.

Since 1920, more NFL players were born in Texas than any other state. About 2,614 players are from this state, a report said.

Houston and Miami were tied as the two cities were the most 2022 NFL players were from.

“You even see it with quarterbacks across the league,” said Garett Sanders, sports director at KETK News. “You are good at what you value, and here in Texas, we value high school football. Because of that, we do produce some of the best talent you are going to see across the NFL.”

Many Texas high schools also have impressive football facilities that help train the next generation of all-stars.
