Just checked to see who we had drawn in the first round and came across this rule - why is this a thing?
What about Premier League teams, and new additions to the Sky Bet Championship?
West Bromwich Albion, the Premier League's bottom side from last season, will enter the competition in Round One. Premier League teams not involved in Europe, along with relegated pair Stoke City and Swansea City, will enter in Round Two, and teams from the top flight who are competing in Europe will join the competition in Round Three.

70 teams in R1 -> 35 + 15 (50) in R2 -> 25 + 7 (32) in R3
If us and Stoke started in R1 as well we'd be a team short by the third round, so they need to either do that or let Leicester start a round later.

Good start to the season then, into round 2 of the Carabao Cup before a ball is kicked.
