So teams could properly protect their own players and claim the rights to the leftovers and not let it go into a bidding war if/once they become good enough.

Just because players wont play for the team means nothing. Look at the NHL draft - outside of the first round, none of those kids will ever play in the NHL.

MLB draft? It's like 30 rounds, NONE of those kids are making it, but its a system so teams can claim the rights, bring kids into their development system if they choose, and avoid a free agent bidding war
