Besides, voters (here and elsewhere) can be sheep, and feedback loops often occur in voting behavior.

Printing the voting during the draft could actually interfere with voting in later rounds. Team A and B meet in the conference finals. Team A has rolled its opponents in the first two rounds, while Team B has won a couple of close contests. Posting the voting numbers for each round might make Team A look like the better team irrespective of the actual strength of the roster simply because "everybody's voting for them". Let's not pollute the voting in this way.
Sounds good to me
