BEAVERTON, ORE.- After two open sessions to the media, we take a look at six quarterbacks, five who've shined and another one making a push from the sleeper ranks, on our Elite 11 Hot Board.

Deshaun Watson- Gainesville (Ga.)- Committed to Clemson
Mr. Consistency. Watson may not be a camp setting quarterback, but he's been solid through the two days that have been open.  He's not the biggest or have the strongest arm, but he nearly always throws an accurate catchable ball. He's shown he has enough arm to be more than just a system guy and he'll probably shine throughout the week in 7on7.

DeShone Kizer- Toledo (Ohio) Central Catholic- Committed to Notre Dame
Kizer is a player who has benefitted the most from the repetitions and instruction from the coaches in attendance. He was much more consistent than we've seen him in the past, and his throws up the middle and to his right were spot on with good velocity. Kizer is so tall that he gives the illusion that he's throwing the ball into the ground on some of his throws with a downward trajectory, only to see the ball hit the receiver in the sternum.  On Sunday, he showed off the strength in his arm on some red zone routes and the touch on his passes too.

Jacob Park- Goose Creek (S.C.) Stratford- Committed to Georgia
Rocking a floppy hat with the Georgia logo, the future Bulldog was just shows the polish every time he lets it loose.  He's got a good arm, and has pristine mechanics and a flawless delivery with great touch on his throws.

Keller Chryst- Palo Alto (Calif.)- Committed to Stanford
Fresh off his commitment to Stanford, Chryst was relaxed and comfortable and Saturday, the ball popping out of his hands and Sunday was much the same, another day of consistency and sharp throws.  Compared to how he looked at the regional camp to how he's looked in Oregon, Chryst looks night and day different and he said on Sunday he's more comfortable than he was in San Francisco.

Kyle Allen- Scottsdale (Ariz.) Desert Mountain- Committed to Texas A&M
Allen, the nation's top-ranked quarterback, has been a consistent and flashy passer on both days.  Allen is so natural in his motion with no wasted motion, he spins it, has great footwork and a cannon for an arm.  A few of the coaches have said his name first when asked who impressed the most.

David Blough- Carrollton (Texas) Creekview- Committed to Purdue
Blough is still somewhat of a sleeper, but he too showed a consistent arm, making all the throws and showing the good footwork in the drills that required it.  The coaches have raved about him both in the film room and on the field.
