2004 Power Forwards

There's talent aplenty here, especially coming from the great state of Washington, including Marvin Williams, Josh Heytvelt and Jake Bettinger...

We won't rank the 2004 class until after July, as there are simply too many players that we haven't had a good look at yet. Instead, we're listing ten of the top players at each position (in no particular order), along with other players of note. Keep in mind that this is a rough list and it will undoubtedly change dramatically by the end of July.
