10 players for the Blue Jackets to consider with their fourth overall pick at the upcoming draft

We'll have to wait and see what is available, but one thing is for certain: the Blue Jackets will have some good options with the fourth overall pick at Friday's NHL Draft.

10. Konsta Helenius, C, Jokerit (Liiga, Finland)


While he should at least be on the radar for the Blue Jackets, I have a hard time seeing them take a serious look at Finnish center Konsta Helenius.

The two-way pivot had a really productive year in Finland's top league, but ultimately, I just don't think the upside is there for him to come off the board with such a high pick. He doesn't have any one elite trait, nor does he have the size you would want in a top-six center.

Unless his offensive game explodes into the league and surprises everyone in a few years, this is a really low ceiling player pick.

Why they should take him: Helenius is probably the second most polished all-around center in the entire draft.

Why they should avoid him: It's quite a drop-off from Celebrini to him. I think he's a third line center in the NHL.
