Bo Horvat would be a perfect pick for New Jersey. Granted the drafts have NJ as somewhere around 27th right now, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he was drafted a lot earlier at 14th-17th. I'd even choose him over Mantha, because Horvat can score (not as well as Mantha perhaps, but that will come in time), wins at least 65% of all faceoffs, and probably more like 70% (especially on the PK/PP), is physical, has excellent defensive play and is probably 1st or 2nd in the League in blocked shots, he fights every battle and wins most of them, and is a very very steady player with practically zero downside. You simply won't see him cough up pucks, not backcheck hard enough, etc.
