NFL State Teams: who would have the best roster?

a completely hypothetical situation presented by my girlfriend today. What if the NFL was comprised

of state teams rostered only by players born and raised in that state. We know there's some restrictions and some regions may merge such as New England or that some states may have enough players for more than one team, such as Texas or Florida. Who would have the best roster and how would you break it down. Active players only.

example: Ben Rothlisberger (Findlay Oh.) would be the starting QB for Ohio

California's, Texas's, and Florida's JV squads could crush most other states' best talent. Which is scary - most of the guys who go to out-of-state colleges from Florida high schools weren't good enough to make the teams at Miami, FSU or Florida. Their 4th-rate high schoolers start at most major college programs.

Wow, NJ's best player is Chris Simms. Although by these guidlines their Head Coach would be Bill Parcells.

Can we exhume Vince Lombardi to help out on the sidelines?

And Simms may be the best player, but you're overlooking former Heisman winner and the pride of West Berlin, Camden County*... Ron Dayne.

*actually, one of the "co-prides" of West Berlin; it's also Kelly Ripa's hometown.

Louisiana does pretty well; 6th overall. When you think about the amount of players relative to state population we do really well. One would expect California, Texas and Florida to do well due to their population; Ohio also, but where is New York? Quite a bit down the list. Probably a function of the population density and demographics in NYC, which provides the lion's share of New York State population(metro NYC not being know as a high school football hotbed. Basketball-- heck yeah, but not football).....
