Going forward, sure.
But it looks like there may be upwards of 10-15 legitimate starters in that veteran draft that would be pretty big pickups since nobody could grab the emerging UDFAs during the season.
As that process gets ironed out, I think you're absolutely right. But until then, you're looking at the FA draft as almost something of a disbursement draft after a team being contracted.
