I agree... Oilers should be focusing on a 2C or a big winger if they don't get Ekblad.
I was just commenting generally how weak this draft is looking for dmen. Everything goes in cycles and the last few draft have been much deeper on D.
If the Oilers don't get Ekblad I wouldn't go with the "next best" D. I'd definitely be targeting Bennett/Ritchie if they choose 3rd or 4th (assuming Ekblad/Reinhart go 1-2).
If they pick at #5 I don't know who I'd choose between DalColle/Draisaitl/Virtanen/Perlini... might be hard to pass on Draisaitl at that point.
