CBSSports has an infographic showing the number of 1st Round draft picks over the last 20 years from each state - and Arizona looks stronger than I would've expected.

* Of all the states in the Pacific and Mountain time zones (not counting Texas), Arizona is second only to California.
* Of all states west of the Mississippi, Arizona is still #4 - only behind CA, TX, and Louisiana.
* Arizona had more picks than the states of Washington, Missouri, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Michigan, Tennessee, and even Deep South Mississippi.

Sidenote: Florida has had 7x as many... WOW. How does at one Florida school not just flat out own the rest of the country - like Miami/FSU/Florida used to? Does the SEC spend THAT much in "resources" down there?
