    Only two rounds the first day with the 1st being limited to 10 minutes instead of 15 minutes between picks, and the second round being limited to 7 minutes between picks. Also, the draft will now commence at Noon pacific (3 Eastern).

    If they shortene the times for the first two rounds i wonder why they moved the 3rd round to the 2nd day?

    Dont know if i like that since we like to see our first three picks ( which we dont have anyways in the next draft) but we'll see how it goes.

    5 rounds on day two could take a long time.

    Not if shorten the intervals the way they did for the first two. If they shave two minutes of three and four and one minute off the rest, they's cut the draft by four or five hours. Those who do their homework will be fine, those who don't will be screwed.

    Day 1 will be much shorter but Days 2 will be a little longer (another hour and a half?)

    Dont like the change to only 2 rounds on day one

    Personally i love how long the draft is on day 1, its a great way to just escape everything and just relax for an entire day and watch it

    I agree. If you are cutting that much time off the first two rounds, it doesn't make any sense to move the third round to sunday. :no:

    well, I guess that after a quick two rounds teams can regroup themselves and reorganize their boards for the second day

    maybe it's so teams only concentrate in two rounds instead of three for the first day :icon_shrug:
