’16 NFL Draft and Texas HS Football

This year, by my count, Texas had 32 players who played high school football within the state get drafted. That’s typically about average, give or take. It’s always interesting to see who made it to the Promised Land after the high school rankings bonanza. Drafted players can be telling of a program’s rise (Baylor/TCU), another ones fall (Texas), or of a scouting department who knows what it’s looking for.
