But to me no question if Jones reaches his potential, he's the most valuable player to have here in this draft.
Right now Jones could step into the NHL and be a pretty decent 2nd pairing Dman, that's his absolute floor.

I don't mean after the draft and in 13 i mean right now.

His skating, strength and defensive play is that good already and he is going to get better, ie more consistent and confident.

I had Nathan 1st and he might still go 1st but Jones is really the guy I would want to build my team around , just like Renegade Stylings mentioned earlier in this thread.
