Obviously an email account would be required, so it could send automated emails to the GM when their team is up or on deck and such. I think it would be really cool, but I haven't really had time to do it since the project I'm on has kept me really busy.
I never really got that far with it, but I might look into it next week while on business travel and bored. I don't think it would be all that hard to do, and I could host the application on my personal server at home. I think it would make these drafts go incredibly fast, and I could probably make it to where individuals could control all 32 teams to create their own mock draft. Might be cool, but it will take some work.
I'm more of a php/oracle guy than a .net guy (although I was a c/c++ programmer for years) but... hmm... it would be do-able. I just don't have the time to work on it or I'd try to lend a hand with it.
If my schedule frees up, I might take a stab at it myself.
