Although NYI=Jones, TOR=MacKinnon and Columbus=anyone with skill (Barkov, Monahan..)
From the reports about how a weighted lottery would work, 6-7 teams would have 3 lottery balls. The isles are one of several teams, who would have 2 lottery balls.

Based on the weighted system, I wouldn't expect the isles to draft top 3.
