I have been in an 8- and 10- team league for the last 11 yrs, and no draft has been LESS than 3 hours(may go less now that we have 5 keepers, I anticipate 2.5 hours). If you have everyone there, it goes less. We either do it all online or have most ppl there and the rest on AOL IM. We also have a time limit on picks (1.5 minutes for the first 5 rds, 2.5 for the rest).
Baseball is a game where a curve is an optical illusion, a screwball can be a pitch or a person, stealing is legal and you can spit anywhere you like except in the umpire's eye or on the ball. ~Jim Murray

My friends and I usually by a keg, draft and drink until its gone.
Draft usually lasts about 2-3 hours.

Our auction style draft on IRC took 9 hours last year, but we were drafting 23 man rosters from scratch. This year we have 5 keepers per team, so we are expecting to decrease the time, plus we learned a few tricks last year which should help as well. Figuring 5-6 hours.
Bah, humbug.
