I haven't tried it myself, and it doesn't address draft length (although if there are unprepared teams in your league a draft can take just as long as an auction), but you could hold an auction draft online using the above website. Also, ask yourself one question:

In a league that won't tolerate an extra hour or two on draft day, the highlight of the fantasy year, how are you going to get all the owners to go along with complicating a draft with dollar values?

If parity is really out of whack, and you still want the simplicity of a draft, why not approach the problem with simple solutions?

Cut down the number of keepers? The fewer the number of players held over, the more everyone starts from zero.

Get rid of the standard serpentine draft order? Let the last place team from last season pick first in every round and so on up the standings. An important thing to add, in case your league requires 15 keepers, is not to require any. Teams should get keepers in exchange for their top draft picks. If a team keeps 15, they don't draft until round 16. If a team keeps four, they start drafting in round five and may be the first team to pick again in rounds six and seven. That way, in a 10 team league that allows 15 keepers, no team, barring misjugement, would have a player outside the top 150 on their roster going into round 16.
