I won't list Alabama and Ga., but it's way more than 4.
Then you have:
Louisiana players who went to LSU (#125, and Phillips #135)
Louisiana players who didn't (#6 Colllins to Alabama, #77 Davis to Texas)
A. You'e not keeping your top talent in state
B. Now we know why you're a fan of a 195# LB. He's the second best player ya'll convinced to stay in state.
B. Louisiana isn't the most talent rich state even in your wildest wetdreams. Regardless of what per capita NFL stat you find.
You are correct though, Florida hasn't pulled kids out of La. lately. Now we know why. Not many Brock Berlins and Ike Hilliards around these days.
My statement is not an opinion, it is an objective fact.
Louisiana and Mississippi, which rank 25th and 31st in population, respectively, send more players per-person to the NFL than other states.
Once again, facts are facts, and the fact is Louisiana produces more NFL players on a per capita basis than any other state, and by and large LSU gets whoever it wants in Louisiana on yearly basis.
