The Atlanta Falcons are leaving no stone unturned when it comes to the sixth overall pick in the NFL draft.

The Falcons are set to host two top prospects in the coming week. ESPN.com reports the Falcons will welcome South Carolina defensive Jadeveon Clowney to the team's facility, while the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that UCLA outside linebacker Anthony Barr will visit the franchise next Tuesday.

In addition, the Falcons will send a group to meet with offensive tackle Greg Robinson at Auburn today, according to FOX Sports.

For those at the top of the draft, it's a busy time. With a deep draft class, teams with picks in the top 10 should be able to find guys they can build around for the foreseeable future.

It would be seen as a surprise if Clowney dropped to No. 6, since he's projected to go in the top three. Barr and Robinson are certainly options for the Falcons at that draft spot.

Of course, the Falcons could always trade up for Clowney. They have a history of doing so as they went from 27th to sixth in 2011 to take Julio Jones, trading five total picks as a result.
