DRAFT CENTRAL: Mock Draft 1.0

by Rob Mixer / Columbus Blue Jackets

As the NHL Draft week gets started, we're going to be tapping into our #CBJ community leaders' hockey brains to see what they're thinking. The Blue Jackets fanbase has some of the best bloggers in the NHL, and several terrific sites dedicated to opining on/covering the club. What better way to kick off the week than get their analysis on the upcoming draft?

First up is our friend @CBJProspects -- this guy is an information super-hub when it comes to prospects both in and outside the organization. He's also a featured writer for the new CBJ site known as The Union Blue. Got a question about a kid playing at Colgate, or a recent draft pick's +/- in junior hockey? Jas probably has the answer for you. He hopes to have (at least some of) the answers right in his mock draft:
