So the pick is in.
The Nashville Predators selected defenseman Seth Jones after he fell to the No. 4 spot. While many people may believe this was a swing-and-a-miss on the Preds part, I believe it fills a hole in the Preds lineup for years to come.
At the No. 4 spot, Nashville was able to take the consensus No. 1 prospect in the draft that would have gone first overall just weeks ago. In addition to Jones being the top-rated prospect, many scouts believe that he is NHL ready. Jones will be able to move into Nashville's top six defenseman and solidify the core with Shea Weber, Roman Josi, Kevin Klein and Victor Bartley. Jones is just another up-and-coming defenseman to add to the stable that already contains Ryan Ellis and Mattias Ekholm.
We have a little break in the action until our next pick, but stayed tuned, we have nine more picks this afternoon.
