Yes, in that order. If you are high in the top 3, the last two don't mean very much anymore.
I'd say what sets apart the elite from the very good is the compete level.

Competitiveness is very high on my personal rankings, of course being a smart player with skill is more important, but I'd rather a highly competitive player over a large physical specimen who isn't highly competitive, or a fast skating player who isn't smart.
