Pass Rusher:

This position gets its own section because there are so many different possibilities.  Khalil Mack is the best option at outside linebacker.  He’s a best at getting at the quarterback while he is amazing in coverage as well.  He’s the kind of guy you could have on the field at all times.  The developments around the league with Oakland got Schaub as their starting quarterback and Teddy Bridgewater having a terrible pro-day, Mack won’t last long.  If Atlanta does trade up, it should be for Clowney and no one else. Anyone that says that Clowney is purely a 4-3 defensive end is just wrong.  But the price might be too high.  If all else fails, Anthony Barr would be the next best option.  He was signed as a running back and has great speed.  He also has the body to easily fill in at 4-3 end if he put on a few pounds.
