James I think is more insurance for this year than a long term solution. Dallas let him go for a reason, and that reason is that James probably doesn't have much left in the tank. Sharpton has injury problems.
As for no pass-rusher, Audie Cole is a pass-rusher, who can also cover and play the run. 14 career sacks testify to that. He also has the agility to play OLB, so he's also a back-up there. Two birds with one stone.
In this pass happy league, and against high powered attacks like the Patriots, Packers, Saints, Lions, LBs who can cover, play the run and pass rush are very valuable. For those offenses, every down is a passing down, so against them you need LBs who can cover and play the run. I don't think 3rd round is too early for a LB who can do that.
