Draft round timer Should be adjustable DURING the draft.
The first few Rounds of a Draft can justify :45 second clocks or even one minute. Strategies are being sorted out with the most important players. However, the second half of a draft can really lag and become frustrating. Some players build up their draft Queue and just leave, and others just browse with indecision. If the commish could adjust the time clock during the draft, more teams would stay until the end. With less frustration.
Absolutely! During auction drafts specifically, when the draft is nearing the end and budgets don't allow for a lot of bidding action being able to reduce the amount of time to nominate players and then bid on players would be handy in moving the draft along.
Yahoo should do away with 20 and 30 second bid times altogether. There is no reason for them and they add up to 2 hours to a draft. It's a waste of time. There is no reason a person can't decide to bid on a player within 10 seconds, especially when everyone only bids a dollar more and the 10 seconds reset. PLEASE DO AWAY WITH 20 AND 30 SECOND BID TIME ALTOGETHER ASAP!!!
Once a time per pick is selected it can not be changed

Cut down time allowed in later rounds. Waiting the full 30 seconds when no one else wants to bid or can't bid due to budget prolongs an already long draft unnecessarily.
The commish can control the timer settings. The default for public leagues is 30 seconds.

Every time through the order there is about 8 broke brains who let every **** second run off the clock... 15 minutes between picks every time is very aggravating.
