I think it helps players who do get drafted in 2nd round

If Diakite is one of those 2nd round draft picks, this rule helps him. If, as is more likely, he is a UDFA, this rule actually hurts him.

Not every team is in luxury tax territory for this to matter though, and it seems like a relatively minor issue so I think it will just give 2nd round draft picks a slight edge in negotiating for a guaranteed contract over a UDFA and being less likely to get cut than a UDFA.

I can't see this rule helping any players move up or down draft boards though. I think it will come into play more when they are deciding between their 2nd round draft pick and a UDFA for the final roster spot if the dollars matter.
