Player distributions were calculated by SbS Football and are based on the following sources.

  • NFL players are based on opening day rosters per team websites, and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
  • FBS/FCS players are based on the rosters form official team websites (as of mid-August).
  • High School 4 and 5 Star players are based on the current Senior class per 247Sports' composite ranking (as of mid-August).
  • Per capita figures are on a per million population basis (2010 census).

Teams are assigned to the state in which they are physically located (i.e. the state where they play their home games). However, an exception is made for three NFL teams physically located in a state we do not consider to be its primary state.

  • The New York Giants (located in New Jersey) are included in the New York profile.
  • The New York Jets (located in New Jersey) are included in the New York profile.
  • The Washington Redskins (located in Maryland) are included in the District of Columbia profile.
The team profiles do not include any teams playing in league besides the NFL or the NCAA (Arena Football League, NAIA, NJCAA, High School, etc.).
All data and information obtained through team websites, the NFL and the NCAA.
