Western Bulldogs club great Brad Johnson has revisited the 2011 AFL draft and put through his suggestions of how the top order would look now based on their careers.

As seen on the Fox Sports website, Johnson took a look back at the draft in which eight of the top ten picks belonged to the all-new GWS Giants, finalising their inaugural list for entry into the competition the following season.

In actual fact, the all-Giants top five cast in 2011 was led by Jonathon Patton, since cruelled by repeated knee reconstructions and hopeful of more regular opportunity at the Hawks.

The Kevin Sheedy-led department took Stephen Coniglio, now-Kangaroo Dom Tyson, current Pie Will Hoskin-Elliott and Matt Buntine with the remainder of their opening selections before Port Adelaide chimed in to grab livewire forward Chad Wingard with Pick 6.

According to Johnson, though, it's an Eagle taken with the 30th selection that has leaped the field to claim top spot in retrospect as Elliot Yeo heads the redrafted edition.

Controversial Giants forward Toby Greene was judged second best, with Lachie Neale flying in all the way from Pick 58 to claim a podium place.
