This function can be done with three 2-input AND gates, as you note.
So one 74x08 Quad AND IC can be used or three individual AND gate ICs.
This uses one 14-pin IC or three 5-pin ICs.
There is no 74-series IC that would do it using fewer pins and using no other functional parts, such as pull-downs.
The 74x08 is the 14-pin single-chip solution that leaves a spare AND gate, unless your application prefers the three 5-pin ICs.
A note on component selection...
Component selection is nearly always a commercial, cost-led decision rather than being technically-led. There's almost always lots of options to do a function: 100s of different op-amps, resistors, capacitors etc that'll do the job fine. It's then aiming to choose one that's lowest price, always in stock, multi-sourced, easiest to buy, won't go obsolete, has fewest solder joints for reliability, uses least PCB space, most power efficient, is tried and tested by industry and your supply/manf/support chain etc. It's a big list.
Choosing a microcontroller's a good example. Most of the time, there's plenty that'll do the task to excess, leaving spare MIPs, spare pins, spare peripherals, spare memory. So it's cost-led by price, supply, development/support time/investment etc. Not often only one part will do it in all those millions of MCU applications all around us.
Here, there's several 74x possibilities, some needing extra components like pull-downs. The PCB tracking costs nothing unless the board is really tight there. So it's which of these circuit options will do it best for the list above. Which is the neatest technical fit is the low priority and nearly always is.
