1. 1.
    Durability. Mental toughness. Resilience. Des has been through the ringer and doesn't stop battling to get back to penny. Stock has steadily grown since he burst onto the scene in season 2. Excellent court and future vision. His ability to shoot gap between the present and the past is unparalleled. His willingness to sacrifice his body and immunity to electromagnetism complete his resume as the top player on the island.
  2. 2.
    Mr. Eko
    If not for injury concerns would be a sure-fire #1 pick. When Mr. Eko speaks, you listen. Very in touch with the island and was the first to overcome his off-island demons. Physically he is a specimen built for the island. Jesus stick is one of the most powerful weapons on the island in his hands.
  3. 3.
    Johnny Locke
    He's what you would call a 5-tooler. If you want someone in touch with the island, look no further. All the skills to survive and thrive on the island. His sage leadership is second to only eko, but his island-first mentality wore out many of his counterparts. Most durable player in this draft.
  4. 4.
    First thing that comes to mind is leadership ability. Instrumental in survival of group. Not always liked but respected by his teammates and does what he needs to do for the benefit of the group. Some concerns about off the field vices and conditioning.
  5. 5.
    Heady player. Very crafty in the pocket. Some call him confident, some call him arrogant. When he toes the line he is as impactful as any in the top 5. Labeled as a locker room cancer early in his career but once his bravery and unselfishness surfaced, he became a fan favorite. Top nicknames in this class.
  6. 6.
    Tenacious and emotional. Always seems to be in the middle of the action and is a key piece on quests. Sometimes untrustworthy and has ignited some internal problems in the locker room, but overall you would be hard pressed to leave Kate off of your season finale adventure group.
  7. 7.
    After a slow start his stock grew with his hair. Fearless warrior that sticks up for his teammates. Communication issues have plagued him in the past but that is one of his most improved areas. Dependable.
  8. 8.
    Biggest heart and pants on the island. May not have the physical prowess of others in the top 10 but makes up for it by being a great presence in the locker room. Contributed when least expected, but his fear of the numbers can cause erratic behavior.
  9. 9.
    Explosive. Shows athleticism when tackling Carl and snapping a guys neck while handcuffed. Very aggressive and always down to torture people, but his no holds barred attitude rubs off poorly on some teammates. Character concerns him from being a true leader.
  10. 10.
    Cerebral assassin as the leader of the others, can manipulate the defense even when he seems to be at a disadvantage. Takes a beating in the pocket but plays through it. Pro Comp: Big Ben.
  11. 11.
    Bridges the gap between survivors and others. Calm under pressure. Not a favorite amongst teammates, however.
  12. 12.
    Good "glue" guy. When Charlie's happy everyone's happy. Not the most reliable without any true wow-factor attributes, but can be a competent tag-along helper.
  13. 13.
    Erratic behavior at times, but has real value on any season-finale missions. Unlike rose, high-risk high-reward.
  14. 14.
    Calming influence in the group, provided a valuable veteran presence. Plays mistake-free, low-risk low-reward game.
  15. 15.
    Anna Lucia
    Stepped in right away and established herself as a go-to asset, potential to be a first-teamed. Durability issues.
  16. 16.
    Shady past. However, helped Jin become a part of things on the island and stuck with him throughout their time on the island.
  17. 17.
    No surprise he was the first one off the island, severe deficiencies in terms of island skills, though he meant well.
  18. 18.
    Nice person. Crucial to Hurley's development, though only amounted to a short term fix.
  19. 19.
    Came to the island too early to make a big impact, returned a foot taller with a mustache, leading to PED speculation.
  20. 20.
    Blends in, not a big difference maker. Surprisingly (and disappointingly?) white.
  21. 21.
    My bayyyybayyyy! Challly! My bayyyybayyyy!
  22. 22.
    Creepy brother/sister thing. Poor judgement (dated Sayid)
  23. 23.
    Nicki and Paulo
    Responsible for the worst episode in any season. Poor attitudes. Selfish. Made me happy when they died.
  24. 24.
    Can't handle the pressure. Or dynamite.
  25. 25.
    Locker room cancer. Bad father, worse friend. Betrayed Jack, Kate, and Sawyer. Killed Anna Lucia and Libby. Selfish. Scumbag.
