Finn, Percy, and Rielly are sure things. All 3 should be top 2 pairing D men. You can't teach hockey IQ, all 3 have spades of this.
Blacker is still a question mark for me, at worst he has the talent to be a 4 guy but hockey IQ is questionable.
The surprise guys are Loov, Nilsson, and Granberg. I wouldn't be surprised if one of them turn out to be solid NHL'ers.
There's Holzer also, I want to see him for an extended stay this year to gauge him. Quiet, efficient, sneaky nasty. When I saw him last year, I was struck at his size, made Komi look like a shrimp. Could be a surprise.
All in all, defence will be the least of our problems, may just need a big tough axman back there in the Dalton Thrower mold.
