Is anybody surprised the state of Texas has produced the most drafted quarterbacks in the past decade? If you are, you sure shouldn’t be.

The state has a big population and it’s the mecca of football in America. The state has the best athletes and coaches in the sport.

Some notable players to come out of Texas high schools are Patrick Mahomes, Johnny Manziel, Ryan Tannehill, Kyler Murray and Baker Mayfield.

To say the state of Texas produces all-star talent through high school and college would be an epic understatement.

Nobody can match the level of football in Texas.
