My amazing hometown.

"How can a South Carolina city with a population of 68,000 and change claim 21(and counting) NFL players as its own?"

The numbers back up that assessment. The city of Miami has the most players in the NFL at 24, but that's a rate of one per 17,254 people. Rock Hill produces one NFL player per 8,512 people. The headliners are easy to recognize. University of South Carolina star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney likely will be the third consecutive first-round pick. He follows Buffalo cornerback Stephon Gilmore (2012) and Minnesota wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (2013).
