Sweeping would be the easiest way to play that lick. Downstrokes for 12, 10, 10 on the G, B, and E strings. Then upstroke on the 13 B string with a pull off to the 10 B string.

Ahh the old pentatonic blues lick heard 'round the world. Sweeping it would work but if you watch and listen to the pick attack of greats like stevie ray or Randy Rhoads(this line appears briefly in Mr. Crowly I believe) or the outro jam on Freebird (live), they actually cross pick or alternate pick the line.
