Jones vs Drouin- would you still want Drouin if draft was today?

Like many, I was disappointed (and a little shocked) that Florida snatched Barkov, but when I heard that we landed Jones, I was actually excited and pretty surprised at some of the comments lamenting the pick, especially since the other 3 were off the board. I have my problems with Poile, but I knew he had absolutely made the right choice, especially given the hand he was dealt.
The moment before Tampa Bay chose, though? Once Barkov and MacKinnon (of course) were off the board, I didn't really care, as my attention was more focused on how pissed I was at Florida. Drouin or Jones would've been great in their own way, but so far - and it's admittedly not the fairest comparison right now - I like Jones much, much better.
