You have two young players you can take. One is a defenseman one is a center. Your teams centers are a strength and your teams defense is a glaring weakness. Both players have franchise potential but the center may have a better chance of making a difference earlier than the defenseman.
You also have to ask, given the team's situation how much is that center really going to contribute? They could draft MacKinnon but he's not going to displace Giroux or Schenn next year. Doubtful that he would even displace Couturier, given the role Couts plays on the team. At some point you have to stop stockpiling centers, and the Flyers are already past that point.

None of the guys they have has really shown much promise at wing, maybe MacK would but why bother? If you're the Flyers and you have a chance to draft Jones you do it and you go from there.
