Jones is going to be a good dman but I wouldn't take him 1st overall. Mackinnon is 1st for me and it's a toss up between Jones & Drouin and I include Jones in the top three out of deference to all the scouts who say he is top 3. I would seriously take Drouin in 2nd.

I don't know but I think Jones will not be an elite d-man. An excellent one but not an elite one.
Why would Jones not be an elite d-man? His tools are as good as any d-man in the draft in recent memory, plus he has good bloodlines in that his father played in the NBA, so the pro lifestyle won't be a big shock to him. He is like a 6'4" and more polished version of Subban at 18.
