I think that's more a testament to how sexy the draft looks right now. There are a lot of possibilities, and I'm not sure there is a wrong choice, but I have to agree with the consensus that Jones is just too appealing a prospect. As much as I'd love to see another forward with elite potential added, I think Seth Jones would be the BPA at 3rd overall, and he's the type of player who could be called a steal at 3rd overall.

The only reason I might pick a forward over Jones(at this point in time), is because defensemen are just tougher to judge at that age. The peak years of a defenseman are usually further down the line than the peak years of a forward.
