Like most rookie classes, this season's class has had its share of good surprises and bad surprises. But the good has far outweighed the bad. Going into last year's draft, expectations for this class were very low in terms of star power and depth. But when it's all said and done, it will likely produce multiple long-term starters, a guy who could lead the league in a key stat and a possible league MVP. It's time to take a final look at these rookies and honor the "Best in Class."

(Note: Our first team is based on position, then we awarded the next three best guards and two best bigs.)
