A lot of mock drafts have us taking Mackinnon or Drouin first overall. I want those guys because they suit team need, but I find it surprising to take them at #1. In the unlikely event we get the number one, I'd drop 1 or 2 spots or just take Jones, who I still see as #1.

The conventional wisdom on defencemen is that they have higher uncertainty (see Barker, E. Johnson, JJ, Hedman), so they maybe shouldn't go so high in the draft. But are people seeing that in Jones? When I look at Jones, I assume that he is going to be better than all the aforementioned defencemen. He is just too well-rounded and all around dominant. Feel free to correct me on this, I haven't followed drafts as closely until this year.
