    Default Shortening the Draft Process

    Some things I have noticed since helping out with the draft this year. I just want to gauge everyone's interest in shortening the draft. Not that it really needs shortening but it seems that there are a fair amount of owners that don't mind being OTTO'd for their 4th or 5th round picks. My suggestion would be:

    1. Shorten the "live" aspect to three rounds.
    2. Keep the pick length the same (1st round is 4 hours, 2nd round is 3 hours, and 3rd round is 2 hours)
    3. 4th and 5th round picks are still available to trade.
    4. 4th-10th rounds are on OTTO draft

    Other suggestion would be to do the same as above but with the 5th-10th rounds on OTTO draft. The 4th round would remain live and have a 1 hour limit.

    I'm surprised how smoothly and quickly this draft has breezed by.

    I think it's fine.

    I just think guys who know they're not picking should be courteous and send the BOG or Commish or Draft Czar a PM informing them they'll be on otto. That way we don't have to wait the 3-4 hours for a guy to *not* make his pick.

    There will always be guys who want to make as many of their own picks as they can. I don't think we should deprive them of that, especially when the picks are tradable.

    What needs to be sped up? The draft went very quicklty, and we finished days earlier than scheduled.

    You're right it doesn't need to be sped up and it has gone by very quickly. I was just thinking it would be easier from an administrative standpoint. It isn't a big deal either way I was just making a suggestion based on what I noticed about all the OTTO picks going on.
