I would say Alex Okafor and Ezekiel Ansah are more like JPP.
He reminds me of JPP with his relentless intensity and never seeming to give up on a play. He, IMO, is like a prize-fighter in the game. He comes at you violently.
Interesting...for comparison's sake, here's how Walter's Football rates them:

I'd have no problem with any of the top 5-6 guys...I do like both Williams and Hankins' size and their ability to play both inside and out. But, Sharrif would be great, too. After seeing how the DL slumped after JS's injury, Harbs can't afford to let that happen again...let Sopoaga walk, draft a couple of studs and hopefully sign a top vet, like Randy Starks. We all saw how dominating the front 7 was in 2011...need to get back to that and the best way is to bring in some real size, toughness and versatility.
Totally agree CorvaNinerFan!
Not as concerned with size as with motor. No more K Balmers please.

Which is why I pause when I read things like "effort not always there" in a player scouting report. Kawann Short from Purdue is an example of this.
