Ansah (and Okafor) I see more as strong side DEs (replacing Tuck). Setting the edge and getting pursuit sacks. I think they're both great pass rushing prospects, but I agree that neither would probably make GREAT pass rushers. But I don't need them to be the next Strahan ... just the next Tuck.
I think of those, one would be available, and I'd be happy with any of those in the first. They all address a real need in a big way for us. I agree about your assessment of Rhodes vs. later CBs in the draft. As for Ogletree, while I agree with you, I think he's the multidimensional type of LB we really need and our dline has to do more with respect to being stout against the run. That and the run stuffers that will be around in the first round just don't impress me (Minter and Teo). But I can understand the misgivings here.
Lemonier: I don't see him being as good as Osi (or Smith or Irvin). The only way I say grab a situational player is if he blows my hair back at what he does (and Lemonier, while good, doesn't do it for me).
Moore: Herzlich has yet to prove that he can play at this level (or get up to the level he played at BC for that matter) so that's a no-brainer. Paysinger I'll disagree with ... I thought he's been coming along really nicely. While Moore might supplant him, I don't think you can say that with a given (at least I didn't bet that impression from him on the little tape I've watched).

Because of his range though, I'd see him as more valuable as a 3-4 OLB who can flare out on zone dog blitzes.
