NFTC Champaign: Scout Team's Top Performer

Scout.com was out in full force at Sunday's Nike Football Training Camp in Champaign, Illinois. Although there were several outstanding performers throughout the camp, it appears one in particular stood out.

The Nike Football Training Camp was in Champaign, Illinois last Sunday, and over 150 prospects showed up to work out.

Scout.com was on-hand to cover the event, and the team members were nearly unanimous in naming their top performer of the camp.

Dave Berk: "Laquon Treadwell came out and didn't disappoint by making all the plays you would expect from a big-time receiver. Made the routine catches with ease and made the hard ones things to remember. Big day for a big talent."

Chris Emma: "Four-star defensive end Elijah Daniel was the most impressive to watch at Sunday's NFTC in Champaign. Daniel wowed during the one-on-one drills, where he showed that explosive first step, allowing him to burst by the blocker. Daniel was so hard to stop, he had his shirt ripped to shreds as a blocker tried -- and failed -- to stop him. The 6-foot-3, 252-pound end is able to turn the corner rushing off the edge. Daniel is one of the best in the Class of 2013, and was definitely the best in Champaign."

Simone Scott: "Laquon Treadwell stood out to me at the NFTC. Not only did he succeed at every drill, but he made it look so easy. The talent, along with his great personality, shows that he is a special player."

Ryan Easterling: "Despite impressive showings by Elijah Daniel and Jason Hatcher, nobody was as dominant all day long as Laquon Treadwell. His combination of speed and strength was hard to combat and he consistently finds a way to come down with the football. Definitely a mismatch for most defensive backs."

Beth Long: "My MVP is linebacker Nyles Morgan, out of Crete-Monee High School in Illinois. He is a 2014 prospect and has plenty of time to grow into his role on a defense. He showed impressive speed and vision on the field, especially going against a stacked field at runningback."

Bill Greene: "The players that really impressed me were Ezekiel Elliott, Ty Isaac, Elijah Daniel and Laquon Treadwell. It was the first time seeing Treadwell in person, and he gets my choice as the top individual performer. He is much better in person than he appears on film, and his film is excellent. He had three highlight-reel catches that were all different in degree of difficulty. He showed the ability to run by people, jump over people and out-fight people for the football."
