I agree. I think Barr is being overlooked.

Talked to Texans HC Bill O'Brien, who says DE Jadeveon Clowney and Khalil Mack would be OLB in base 3-4. But multiple D so play down 60 pct.

I still think he`d be the better fit since he actually is pretty good in coverage. But I´d also still prefer Clowney, because I consider him the way better talent and way more excitiong player.

Werder had to pad a little.
Actual transcript is probably:

EW: What about Clowney?
BOB: <GLARE>
EW: What about Mack?
BOB: <GLARE>
EW: Would they both be OLBs in a 3-4?
BOB: Grunt. (Walks away).

How's that? If you rate them as OLBs, Mack is the better of the two.

Playing down 60% of the snaps... I'll have to see how we do it, but if we're going to do it based on offensive personnel, it won't be too hard for offenses to keep Clowney standing up. That 60% may turn into 30% in real time.

According to BOB, it was 30% last year.
