This is my list

1. Yorick
2. Xerath
3. Caitlyn
4. Heimerdinger
5. Sivir
6. Lux
7. Morgana
8. Singed
9. Mao'Kai
10. Nasus

Expanded List:
11. Kog'Maw
12. Cho'Gath
13. Sivir
14. Karthus
15. Mordekaiser
16. Riven
17. Ashe
18. Brand
19. Miss Fortune
20. Teemo

Other notable, exceptional bottom laners that are viable but better suited top:
Talon, Janna, Cassiopeia, Urgot, Amumu, Malhazar, Soraka, Ryze, Twisted Fate

I haven't decided where to add them yet; but once more players confirm their rankings, I'll plug them in where necessary.

Edit: I've had more time to experiment with several champs. I've also kept a closer observation of others champs listed. I have a certain bias towards certain champs probably due to my ability to play them well. Overall though, it seems there are a lot of disagreements to my list.

Edit: A closer reflection of the community's ranking has been edited. I included some of the champs bot based on defense and pushing power. I know some of the champs are better suited to go top, however not all team compositions allow this. Sometimes that champ must fill bot when the team lacks a competent bot laner.

Edit: Added an expanded list.

Totally forgot Morde! He should be up there between Singe and Heimer in terms of pushing power.

Morde gets rolled early on, thus he doesn't make a very good bot laner.

Edit: If I see Morde, I will pick Talon or AP TF to face him, makes it impossible for him to push and the consta-poke eventually forces him to back or die.

The lack of Cho'gath and Karthus confuses me.

I'd remove Kog, he's good bot yes but better gold gains top. Having Kog on bot past the 5-7 minute mark is a waste.

Caitlyn so high really? Doesn't the increased exp and gold gain kind of offset her early game power?

Teemo so high? I'd put him at like 13. He's good, just an easy tower dive when the enemy team is angry they can't get windmill.

I'd put heimer #2.

No Maokai? Kind of surprised, I'd put him at the bottom, same with Morg.

I didn't add Shaco because, while yes he's great at defending top turret, he doesn't push very well bottom lane.

I added Maokai and Morgana under the Other Notable Exceptional Bottom Laners.

On Caitlyn and Heimer; Between the two, Caitlyn still has the range advantage over Heimer and can decimate his turrets without taking damage. She still excels at pushing despite having her early game taken away.

Nasus is probably the most overlooked champ and does extremely well bot. With exhaust and garrison he both pushes and defends very well.
