I'm not trying to sound ignorant of Jones as a player, he's the best d prospect I've seen since Doughty. I just have a hard time following the trend of D over Forward. There really isn't a question that Mackinnon is a future #1 C and seeing just how hard it's been to acquire one for the past 5 years vs acquiring capable D.. I just can't buy it.
You can definitely argue that we need D just as badly as forwards, and thus justifying Jones.. But with all these promising back end prospects we've been able to gather all while not seeing one capable #1 C.. I just don't think we could pass on the opportunity if it presents itself.
Everything I have ever learned about first overall pick battles and draft tendencies is when its this damn close, just take the forward. That just what I feel like is the right move here.
And driving possession is a huge concern for us, that much I couldnt agree with more.
