Raising the UFA age will also force teams to put more emphasis on drafting wisely. The longer younger players are locked into a particular team (barring trade), the less you can rely on free agency to fill gaps and fix mistakes. Trading would be another way to get rid of crappy players/fill needs but that requires even more variables than drafting alone does since it involves another team with its set of needs, player(s) outside your organization, etc.
