All things being close equal I think the Center gets picked first by most teams(of coarse there is a few teams that might benefit more with a defenseman)
I dont think it is easy as center vs dman.

Jones is a beast. Not your averaged dman. Guy is a physical freak and has very good offensive skills. This kid looks like Chris Pronger 2.0 without all the character flaws.

Nathan Mackinnon did next to nothing with the time he DID get in the WJC. He also was less than impressive in the prospects game. Jones was very good in both.

One player is trending up, while the other is going the other direction from where I sit.
