The State of Texas has the most players drafted in the 2020 NFL Draft

Seattle Seahawks drafted LB Jordyn Brooks from Dallas, Texas in the first round.

The 2020 NFL Draft is in the bags, and guess what, Florida did not have the most players drafted.  This is crazy, because the State of Texas dominated this year.

  • Thirty-eight states, as well as Washington, D.C. had at least one player drafted.
  • 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)].
  • Texas led all states in drafted players for the first time since 2016, when they had 32 players selected.
  • 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.
  • Texas led all states with seven first-round selections. Florida followed with four players selected in Round 1.
