Main difference between Yakupov and MacKinnon is general IQ, hockey sense and character, MacKinnon simply dominates Yakupov in all three categories. Yakupov is a better scorer with better acceleration. Nobody is catching up to MacKinnon, imo, he is as solid as anyone can be at this point in the season for 1st overall. (Taylor Hall type domination)

When all is said and done, I'm really not sure Drouin will be in the top 5. He's just a bigger risk. (See Teuvo)
