FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- FOX Sports NEXT takes a look at the top five quarterbacks in Sunday's Nike Football Training Camp.

The Nike Football Training Camp stopped in northern New Jersey Sunday and there was some strong showings at quarterback. Here are the five who stood out to FOX Sports NEXT.


1. John Lovett, DeMatha Catholic High, Hyattsville, Md.
Skinny: Lovett displayed solid accuracy and arm strength and was the only quarterback at the event to consistently hit receivers in stride on deep patterns. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez singled him out as the best quarterback on the field, and he was named the QB MVP.


2. Jarrett Guarantano, Bergen Catholic High, Oradell, N.J.
Skinny: Guarantano, a class of 2016 prospect, already shows elite arm strength and a quick release. He has to grow into his body and show he can read defenses and keep a cool head in the pocket, but he is off to an impressive start on the camp circuit.


3. Caleb Henderson, Lake Braddock Secondary School, Burke, Va
Skinny: The North Carolina commit had an inconsistent throwing day but displayed solid mechanics and accuracy on short routes. Henderson forced too many passes to the wrong places throughout the day.


4. Steve Shanley, Paramus (N.J.) Catholic High
Skinny: Shanley made every throw accurately within 25 yards of the line of scrimmage and his deep balls were inconsistent but catchable. Shanley won a state championship with five-star Jabrill Peppers and company last season and is experienced in trying to hit deep routes in stride but needs improvement in the area.


5. Stephen Barmore, Southington (Conn.) High
Skinny: Barmore has a smooth, quick release but does not have elite arm strength or accuracy. He threw catchable balls and got on a roll when grouped with top-level receivers Chris Godwin and Noah Brown. When forced to throw into tighter windows, Barmore struggled.
