You should always draft the BPA, if two guys are rated equally then yeah take the one who best suits your positional needs but that's rarely the case.
That's not a very strong argument saying Jones is better than most of our d in the pipeline. He's still a prospect, and not everyone pans out. If we lose Getz or Perry this year then we will be seriously looking at our drafting pool the past few years. If we are top 3 I think it's safe to say we will grab Lindholm. This is all hypothetical of course and wishful thinking obviously if we land top 3.
