NFL Draft Stats: A Different Per Capita Look

Here's a per capita look of drafts picks in relation not to population rather the numbers high school players per state..

In the table below you have a unique and different look at per capita numbers in relation to the NFL Draft and where players were coming from. Rather than use each state's population figures, these scores take into account two items regarding each state - the amount of players drafted in relation to the numbers of high school football players for that state.
