Other than hockey writers, the majority of opinions I have seen on the draft have Jones lower and Mac or Drouin higher. We all watch the same games and most of us (though not all) see that defensemen take longer to develop and are a bit riskier to develop. It isn't a big surprise that the Avs think the same.
I don't believe this is a smoke screen. I always hear about teams bluffing with their top pick, but I can't recall an instance that has actually happened, where a team says they will do one thing and do something completely different. I would be really surprised if the Avs say they aren't picking Jones, and then turnaround and select him first overall.
