With the 2020 NFL season set to get underway Thursday, a quick look at current NFL rosters showed 25 players who played high school football in Minnesota.

The Vikings, Green Bay and Tampa Bay each have three locals on their rosters, while Carolina, Detroit and the New York Jets have two each.

Two players are former Vikings -- Tom Compton with San Francisco and Brandon Zylstra with Carolina. Five played at the University of Minnesota: Tyler Johnson, Tampa Bay; Carter Coughlin, N.Y. Giants; Maxx Williams, Arizona; Blake Cashman, N.Y. Jets, and Kamal Martin, Green Bay.

The positions with the most Minnesotans are offensive line (8), linebacker (6) and tight end (4).

Three Eden Prairie high schoolers made the list while Cretin-Derham Hall and Burnsville have two former players currently on NFL rosters.

And in case you're wondering, a few Minnesotans who were on rosters last season are still free agents looking for a home, including Eagan’s Zach Zenner, Cretin-Derham Hall’s Seantrel Henderson and Springfield’s Tyler Marz.
