BEAVERTON, Ore. -- The Opening featured many of the nation's top prospects, and there were many memorable plays and moments. But after watching all the players over the past several days, it's time to hand out some awards:

Strongest arm: Keller Chryst (Palo Alto, Calif./Palo Alto)
This was a tough one, as there were some live arms on display. I picked Chryst because his arm strength is elite but only when he needs it, so it is deceptive. You just don't see it all the time. There were prospects on hand with better wrist velocity, but for pure power, when he wants to, Chryst gets the nod. To be honest, there isn't a Matthew Stafford in this class in terms of arm strength.
