Drouin is a natural C and still from time to time plays C with Halifax. Not sure why everybody is knocking him for being a winger, he is not. The fact that he is a pure playmaker that loves to handle the puck makes him a logical bet to end up as a C.

Secondo, I think Jones is the consensus #1. Drouin, MacK and Barkov are not in a Crosby/Ovechkin class, whereas Jones might be the best D to come along since Pronger and the package he brings is very unique. I think it would be a mistake not to take him #1.

That said, I wouldn't be surprised if when all is said and done, Jones-Barkov-Drouin-MacKinnon is the order. MacK really doesn't have the elite skills Barkov or Drouin have. He has more ''intangibles'' though
