Washington, D.C., Elite 11: Top 5 2015s

ASHBURN, Va. -- The Elite 11 took place Friday at the Washington Redskins' practice facility, and Scout.com takes a look at the top performers from the 2015 class at the event.

The Elite 11 rolled into the Washington Redskins' training facility, and like a year ago, Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep quarterback Brandon Wimbush was a force.

He was one of five quarterbacks selected for the "Pressure Chamber" two-minute drill at the end of the combine, and spent the three-hour session showing why he is a four-star quarterback. So, who stood out?

Scout.com takes a look at the Top 5 class of 2015 quarterbacks at the combine.

1. Brandon Wimbush, 6-2, 205, Jersey City (N.J.) St. Peter's Prep
Wimbush has a reputation of having a big arm, and it was on full display during the competition. He spun the ball well, and his arm strength was ridiculous. No one through a 15-yard out on a line like he did, and when it was time to throw down the field, he flicked his wrist and the ball flew. Wimbush was also effective on the move, and he was able to square his shoulders and throw down the field with accuracy. His biggest area for improvement remains being more accurate on his intermediate throws, but he had the "Wow" factor.

2. Nick Johns, 6-2, 220, Washington (D.C.) Gonzaga
Johns is a pure pocket passer, and he spun the ball very well on his throws down the field. He was most comfortable in the pocket and did a nice job of getting his feet and arm in sync. Johns mechanics were solid and he did a good job of throwing the ball to the outside, and he showed good touch down the field. When it came to rollout drills, Johns wasn't as nimble as a few of the other quarterbacks, but it didn't impact his accuracy and he was able to complete the passes.

3. Elijah Robinson, 6-1, 185, Montclair (N.J.) High
Robinson is rate as a three-star safety, but his performance could be the first step in him being changed to quarterback. A stronger and more mechanically sound Robinson showed good arm strength, threw with accuracy and the ball came out of his hand smoothly and effortlessly. He demonstrated touch on passes over the linebackers and safeties, and he was dynamic on rollouts. He needs to become more consistent, but this was an impressive step.

4. Jordan Lane, 6-1, 205, Charlotte (N.C.) Victory Christian
Lane came in unheralded and without an offers, but he was consistent, showed off good arm strength, was able to throw in the pocket and on the run, and was a pleasant surprise. He did a lot of things well, including keeping a nice base and getting his hips and shoulders into his throws. He wasn't great in anything, but he was consistently strong across the board.

5. Sean Paul Brophy, 6-2, 195, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral
Brophy came a long way to compete and it was worth it. He had a quick release and was accurate on his short and intermediate throws. He kept his feet underneath him, and his arm and feet worked in unison. He had good arm strength, and the only thing keeping him from moving up the list was a bit more consistency, and a little better spin on the ball.
