Haven't seen the thread like this and I'm interested in what you guys have to say about it.
Here's my take:
1. Satomi Kajima - Not much seen from him but being One Shadow's disciple and current leader implies his great strength
2. Kano Sho - Described as "perfect", member of the Kuremisago tribe, former leader, God Hand's disciple, meant to inherit all the styles
3. Tirawit Koukin - Managed the impossible - to defeat and "kill" Kenichi
4. Ethan Stanley - took the personal training from Elder for Kenichi to defeat him
5. Boris Ivanov
6. Tanimoto Natsu
7. Kushinada Chikage - Genius potential, but her emotions hinder her capabilities
8. Asamiya Ryuuto - Can't walk anymore, safe to assume that his strength diminished
9. Radin Tidat Jihan - Too proud and arrogant to be able to reach the higher martial arts, it was said that Jenazad could raise another disciple of his caliber in no time
10. Rachel Stanley - Attracting attention is more important to her than fighting skills

I don't think a rank would ever be fair nor actually possible. In between every yomi fight kenichi has had there has always been a gap of time in which they have grown stronger. This alone and the fact that every yomi has a different style would make a proper rank impossible. We might just as well say the one who gets defeated the latest is the strongest to some degree.
I do think you are underestimating radin and rachel though. Radin did fight kenichi in an uncomfortable weather for him and without shoes in the snow, basically 2 rather important limiters to his power. Rachel was able to fight on par with renka who is no slouch. Renka is supposed to be a bit into the talented category and as far as we know she could still be stronger than kenichi.
It's really hard to rank them at this point because we haven't seen each members full abilities yet but I'll take a crack at it.
1) Satomi Kajima
2) Tirawit Koukin
3) Kano Sho
4) Tanimoto Natsu
5) Kushinada Chikage/Rachel Stanley
6) Ethan Stanley
7) Radin Tidat Jihan
8) Boris Ivanov
9) Asamiya Ryuuto
This list is subject to change.
