Usually the top ranked defender against the top ranked skater is a battle that goes until the last minute when it was clear the whole time that the top forward was the right pick to make. I'll believe Jones over Nathan when it happens.
Not even close.

Seth Jones will be number one, unless a team is flush with dprospects picks first. I could see Columbus going with a center instead, or maybe trading down.

On merit alone, its Jones without question.
