Create a new auction format like your waiver feature in auction leagues; Player gets nominated and all GM's have 10 seconds to make a blind
Create a new auction draft format...player gets nominated, all GM's have 10 seconds to make a blind bid...highest bid wins and is announced by computer within 5 seconds. Could auction 3-4 players per minute with this.
Yahoo already uses this on waivers, so technology is there. This format would drastically speed up time of auction drafts.

Super interesting idea. Would be cool if the feature allowed for an optional 2nd round of bidding. After the 1st blind bid, the highest bid would be shown and owners would have an option to bid higher

This could cut so much time off of the current auction format. Leagues with 16, 18, 20 teams take 5-6 hours to complete an auction draft.
