FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- FOX Sports NEXT takes a look at the top five receivers 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. Chris Godwin, Middletown (Del.) High
Skinny: Godwin made it look consistently effortless in 1-on-1s. Nearly impossible to jam at the line of scrimmage, he quickly separated from most defensive backs and showed soft hands. The Penn State commit had no issues getting open or making plays at any point in the day.


2. Curtis Samuel, Erasmus Hall High, Brooklyn
Skinny: Samuel was the only receiver to get the better of four-star defensive back Troy Vincent. His routes were sharp, but he had multiple drops. He tripped up more than one defensive back on double moves.


3. Noah Brown, Pope John XXIII High, Sparta, N.J.
Skinny: Brown was the most physical receiver at the line of scrimmage and he displayed strong ball skills. He did not show the top-end speed to consistently get passed cornerbacks.


4. Irvin Charles, Paul VI High, Sicklerville, N.J.
Skinny: Irvin has a good receiver body type. He ran quick, sharp routes but struggled against physical cornerbacks. He already holds offers from Temple and Massachusetts and will be one of the top players in the state’s 2015 class.


5. Alan Butler, Timber Creek Regional High, Erial, N.J.
Skinny: Butler did not get a lot of time with the main group but made the most out of his reps. Butler is long and athletic and attacked the football.
