Remember that this is largely opinion and it is not based on the best jungle PICKS since that is highly objective and subject to opinion. This list is taking into account the potential of characters to jungle on their own regards to make measuring their capabilities easier.
God Tier – Lee Sin, Udyr, Skarner, Dr. Mundo, Nocturne, Trundle
Tier 1 – Jarvan IV, Maokai, Nautilus, Alistar, Riven, Shaco, Shyvana, Cho’Gath, Malphite, Amumu, Olaf

Tier 3 – Gragas, Rumble, Twitch, Fiora, Singed, Kayle, Pantheon, Twisted Fate, Janna, Kennen, Blitzcrank,Taric, Sion, Ezreal, Soraka, Karthus, Cassiopeia, Lulu, Ziggs, Fizz, Leona, Caitlyn, Corki, Heimerdinger, Brand, Eve
Tier 4 – Veigar, Yorick, Poppy, Karma, Nasus, Irelia, Malzahar, Sivir, Galio, Akali
Tier 5 – Viktor, Mordekaiser, Graves, Varus, Orianna, Garen, Ahri, Talon, Annie, Urgot, Kog’Maw, Ashe, Sona
For tiers G to 2 – the placement is more important towards indicating “who is better” but less so for tier 3. In tier 3, just think of it in brackets as the champions here are more flawed and harder to argue. You can say that the higher tier 3 champions are better than the lower tier 3 though. For Tier 4 and 5 it’s pretty much wishy washy.
Some people seem to be getting confused with the ranking. It should be obvious by seeing who gets the S scores that S means higher than A.
S scoring is just some video game thing used to say things like “Oh man you are amazing” etc etc. It’s most commonly used in arcade type games.
