Skill and potential aside, he's another small'ish forward who isn't known for his physical game. Though he is a centre, if we got him then surely one of the top kids has to go, right?

Personally if we were sitting 3rd/4th it would be hard not to take the bigger Barkov instead.
3 or 4 would be a good spot for us, we would for sure get Barkov or Monahan.

If we pick first I'd take Jones, I'd probably pick Barkov at 2nd or 3rd over Drouin and Mackinnon, and if we're picking 3-5 I'd hope for Monahan.

This is a top 5 where we should pick for need, I think Jones/Monahan/Barkov are probably ready to play in the NHL right away and they aren't smurfs. We really need vets right now more than anything, but this draft will still be quite interesting for the Oilers.
