I've done an NFL draft league for the last 4 years. Trust me, 30 seconds is enough. All of you lot will prepare for it, so 30 seconds should be enough. If you're able to do some mock drafts, you'll see that.

Did a 60 sec mock with 6 8, and was forever waiting and waiting. That 1st 30 sec mock I did get in a muddle, not this time. Have a go at a mock, think SC's right, once you get used to the formatting, turns and clock it's a doddle.

Yeah it's especially bad if you pick on the turn.

10 is a bit too big already, so that's the max.
Please forgive.

Did a 30 sec mock with 8 last night, slightly edgy tbh, 60 is about right as it just gives you a bit of breathing space.

Missed out here. Maximum number of team admitted to League. Enjoy the ride boys.

For whats it's worth. I too joined an 8 Team Public Draft. It took 30 minutes to complete with the timer set at 90 seconds.

Sounds like even with a 90 second time limit, the draft won't take that long. 60 seconds might make it even a little quicker and should be enough time for everyone.

Back in the day when I was involved with ESPN NFL draft leagues and we converted to online drafts, IIRC we had a 60 second limit and it worked okay... and back then there were definitely connectivity challenges (site glitches and some folks on dial-up, etc). tongue.gif

Correct the Draft won't take long to complete. But, a little warning to some of the Draft Newbee's like me. The way the Premier League have set this game up, can catch some managers out. When other managers make fast selections, the clock stops and then it's the turn of the next manager. Be aware your turn can come around faster then you thought it would. Maybe lack of experience on my part, but, I found myself rushing even with 90 seconds on the clock. I suppose my problem was the false sense of time I believed I had to scan the selections when the Draft was moving around the others in the group.
If your a Newbee and you get opportunity to have a trial run before the main event .... do so

So far I think there only one league unsure.gif ...think the other two "draft leagues" are for another game...I could be wrong...
But I guess if we got 16 people interested ...two leagues of 8 could start up...but I guess thats up to WALOR unsure.gif
