How long are the drafts in ensuing years?

I know it will vary from year to year and league to league (based on the number of players kept and team’s budgets and the managers themselves), but typically, how long are the drafts in the 2nd, 3rd year and on?

I want to say around 2.5 hours? It’s nothing like the first year draft – which, although a ton of fun, will make your butt go numb no matter how lovely your seating situation.


Depends a lot on how many players each team needs to add and how well acquainted everyone is with the auction room. I think anywhere from 2.5 to 4 hours is possible.
