Anthony Barr vs. Khalil Mack vs. Jadeveon Clowney vs. Dee Ford

Since our pick at #6 most likely comes down to a Pass Rusher or a Pass Blocker, I thought it would be interesting to see a break down of the 2 most likely available pass rushers. Both Buffalo and UCLA have completed their pro days, so let's take a look at how each player performed: (We'll also throw in the numbers of 2 other highly regarded pass rushers, just for fun)

Anthony Barr - 6'5 255

40 times - 4.66 (combine) 4.45 (pro day)

Bench reps - 19

Vertical - 34.5

Broad jump - 9'11

Shuttle - 4.19

3-Cone - 6.82

Khalil Mack - 6'3 251

40 time - 4.65 (combine) 4.53 (pro day)

Bench reps - 23

Vertical jump - 40

Broad jump - 10'7

Shuttle - 4.18

3-Cone - 7.08

Jadeveon Clowney - 6'5 266

40 time 4.53 (combine) Pro day 4/2/14

Bench reps - 21

Vertical jump - 37.5

Broad jump - 10'4

Shuttle - DNP

3-Cone - 7.27

Dee Ford - 6'2 252

40 time - 4.54 (pro day)

Bench reps - 29

Vertical jump - 35.5

Broad jump - 10'4

Shuttle - DNP

3-Cone - DNP

If we do go Pass Rusher, I think our pick will come down to either Barr or Mack (though a trade for Clowney is certainly possible). I was a little disappointed in Barr's combine numbers, but his pro day certainly eased that. Barr also flashes on film, and when it is appearing more and more likely that Mack is highly coveted by teams ahead of us, I am feeling better and better about the prospects of having Barr in a Falcons uniform. On the other hand, if we get a shot to address the OT position at 6 and could pick up Ford with our early 2nd, that would be pretty dynamite as well (though the most likely scenario would require a trade back into the late 1st).
