If the Flyers end up with one of the others not named Jones, it's going to be perfectly fine.
I think there's a pretty clear consensus that the gap between Jones and the next best defenseman is massively larger than between the top two forwards--since some scouts seem to disagree on whether MacKinnon or Drouin is the best forward in the draft.
