I love Barkov so I'm completely biased. I think he's possible right there with Drouin/MacKinnon as the best forward in this draft.

The way I see it, this draft has the following blue chip elite players

Jones
MacKinnon
Drouin
Barkov
Nichuskin
Lindholm
Monahan
Shinkaruk

Maybe even Nurse/Ristolainen but I'd probably label them a step below elite.

I don't honestly see Jones as that far ahead of MacK, Drouin, Nichushkin or Barkov. At this point, while I think Jones is nearly a lock for 1st overall, I still think they all have an argument for being picked 1st.
