BEAVERTON, Ore. — Built-up anticipation ended Sunday morning in Oregon as 19 of America's top quarterback prospects assembled on the same field for the start of Elite 11 finals at Nike's world headquarters. The annual event, led by head coach and Super Bowl champion Trent Dilfer, puts its competitors through a variety of passing drills that challenge their power, accuracy and decision-making.

Elite 11 alumni include national stars like Andrew Luck, Tim Tebow, Matthew Stafford and Jameis Winston. The 2014 edition features several recruiting class cornerstones, with Josh Rosen (UCLA), Ricky Town (USC) and Kyler Murray (Texas A&M) in the mix.

The group, which participated in a pair of sessions Sunday, is mentored by an impressive collection of counselors. Baylor's Bryce Petty and Notre Dame's Everett Golson are among the college standouts in attendance to assist, while Heisman Trophy winners Sam Bradford and Johnny Manziel spent time watching and speaking with participants.

Several quarterbacks turned in outstanding performances on the first day of a weeklong stay in Oregon, which culminates with The Opening later this week. Here's a look a six competitors who stole the show as we watched from the sidelines.
