I know these are very hard to ID when small, but what do you think? Any ballpark suggestions that would get me "close" are welcome!

I agree with the emoryi ID. It is very possible that it could be a hybrid too. Did you have a lot of variegated seedlings come up from that batch? I have seen that more with hybrids.

not a clear emoryi, I'd rather say emoryi hybrid. Or may be a rectispinus.

Guys, you are really daring! I think it's by far too early to ID these seedlings.
A young Fero diguetii ssp. carmenensis would look similar also:

This is a Ferocactus wislizeni X F. rectispinus if that helps any.
