There should be risks to drafting; it's what makes the game dynamic and interesting. If one route was risk free, then every team would take that route and there would be no alternative ways to win.
Once you give younger kids power it would turn in to a disaster though. They would want to go to teams that are doing well. They should be humble to be drafted by a certain team and stick with them.
