Is dat sum empirical evidence?
"It is no surprise that California, along with Florida and Texas, produce large numbers of draftees. After all, they are three of the four largest states in the USA, making up 26% of the population.
But those three states out-produce their population when it comes to NFL draft picks. They account for 1,808 of 5,395 players drafted — 34% — according to a USA TODAY analysis of the NFL draft from 1988-2007."
I could be wrong, but generally the players that get drafted into the NFL tend to be fairly decent during their time in college. Or, in analyst terms: they're studly studs of stud that stud all over studs. I quite prefer the fact that we're recruiting "football players" that want to "play football" on a "football team." I don't care much for where they come from - they could call Antarctica their homeland for all I care.
TL;DR "Mr Stevens," your point cannot be backed up with facts & conviction
