I don't have any statistical data backing this up, but does it ever seem like certain regions or states are particularly ripe with a certain position?

Yea yea, the SEC honks will come out and say "The best players from every position come from the south!" But I for one think that Quarterbacks grow on trees in California. The last couple years, Louisiana is where the stud DT's are at. Texas always has the best beefy O linemen.

I'm trying to find out which other regions are the best for certain positions, so feel free to chime in.

Cant argue with DT from Louisiana, nor Guards/Tackles from Texas.

The Penn region/Big Ten country are the LB's.

Florida producing some good WR's lately.

I dont know the which regions dominate for today's/present RB's or DB's?

QB is definitely debatable.

I would have to say that the South puts out the best RBs...

Past RBs: Earl Cambell (Texas), Eric Dickerson (Texas), Jim Brown (Georgia), Walter Payton (Mississippi)

Current RBs: Cedric Benson (Texas), Adrian Peterson (Texas), LT (Texas), Warrick Dunn (Louisiana)

Dan Marino
Broadway Joe
Montana,
Jim Kelly
Johnny Unitas
George Blanda.

That's what I got so far.

Hard to argue with PA for QBs. Terrelle Pryor is the next big PA quarterback.

I'd say Florida is a good place for LBs.

Between Ohio and Pennsylvania are tons of great linebackers. Seems like every single year a great LB comes out of those 2 states. (just look at the history of great LBs at Ohio State and Penn State.)

WRs come from Virginia.

And so do scrambling QBs right? Allen Iverson, Aaron Brooks, Michael Vick, Marcus Vick, EJ Manuel.

Anybody read that article in an ESPN Mag about some area in FL where WRs come from?

It was really cool...these kids learn to run by chasing rabbits (to kill them for their skins and sell for a small amount of money) on corn fields with all kinds of tar on them.

One of my favorite sports features i have ever read

Yeah, I actually have family in Pittsburgh, and best friend from college lives is from there as well, and I hear about all these qbs all the time.

Definitely linebackers in Ohio.

AJ Hawk, Chris Spielman, Bobby Carpenter, Andy Katzenmoyer (before the back injury), Pepper Johnson, Mike Vrabel, just to name a few recent guys.
