If we knew then what we know now ...

Watching the playoffs, you can't help but notice the impact of the 2003 draft. Already, it stands among the best classes in league history. I thought it might be interesting to see what it might look like if the teams got another shot at it today.
I re-ranked all of the talent based on what we know today about these players and slotted them 1-30. I didn't take team need into consideration -- it's just a true ranking -- but we included the teams that owned the corresponding pick in 2003 so you can fantasize a little about what these squads might have looked like had the draft unfolded a little differently.
