There isn't a single "best" top laner right now, and there probably never will be. It depends too much on your lane opponent and team comp to choose just one. However, Elise, Renekton, Rumble, Cho'Gath, Jayce, and Shen are all top-tier choices. Elise and Renekton are huge lane bullies that have good base damage, meaning they can build tanky. Jayce and Rumble both scale well later in the game with good DPS. Cho'Gath and Shen are immovable tanks that can hold their own in trades while still providing good team utility throughout the game. Kha'Zix is also strong, but tends to do better in the mid lane.

I was going to recommend renekton. He has great sustain with his Q and can last hit from range with a double use of his E. Also, his W throws a kink in any jumps or ganks. Hardest counters that I've found for Renekton is an amazing singed, a really descent teamo, and a ballsy adc soraka(this is laughable, but she somehow owns). Garen, darius can try to counter but really that is just skill advantage then, not champ advantage. Riven and Renekton are somewhat even match up. Supposedly Irelia is a hard counter, but I didn't see it in my experience. In theory, she does though.

NUNU. He will never EVER lose lane and late game Nunu + lulu + Vayne = gg.
Also he is the only Yorick counter and ****s on elise. He can even win lane vs renek if your good enough.

Rumble, Yorick does fairly well too. Rumble with high sustain and then bullying everyone out of the lane, basically most melee tops, but he falls to Jax sometimes, or Jayce. Other than that teamfight potential is high, so I'd say Rumbru.

I'd have to pick Jayce, but like others said, It's situational.
Jayce is probably one of the most versatile champions in the league, with a plethora of great ablities to combat all types of opponents with.You can farm safely at a distance with your ranged stance, and deliver devastating damage with your E-Q combo. You can knock back aggressors by switching to hammer stance and E'ing them away, even add in a Q if they popped ghost. Mana problems negated by his passive mana regen while in hammer stance. If his lane is good, he scales very well into late game, and can fill several roles in teamfights. A good Jayce should be able to hold his own even against those with mechanical advantages over him.
And to top it all off, his Full Metal skin is probably one of the coolest skins in the game (IMO)
