I wrote the primer referenced earlier in the thread. I think there are a few "Predator" players in the top six or seven-- Drouin(ideally, though I think he goes second overall, personally), Barkov, Monahan, Lindholm.

However, I think if the Predators pick first, there's no way they don't take Jones, no matter how much we may not want them to. Outside of Ekholm, the defensive cupboard is pretty bare, in terms of top four talent.

In fact, I think that if the Preds pick anywhere below 5, they take a defenseman, be it Nurse, Pulock, Ristolainen, or Hagg. After the first 5 forwards, the draft shifts to being D-heavy from about the 7 mark up to the 20 mark.
