Should the Bears trade up to draft Matt Kalil?

Should the Bears trade up to draft Matt Kalil?

Hyped by on April 9, 2012 Website:

Vikings’ general manager Rick Spielman told Pro Football Weekly that the No. 3 pick in the draft is on the market.

There are times we have been in (the war room) and we’ve done deals on the clock, it’s an unknown, but you’re prepared for both ways. We’ll be ready and we’ll have a good idea of what we think the value of that third pick is.

If we want to get out of that pick, we’ll [determine] what it will take to get out of that pick, plus you have to be careful of how far you would want to go back (down in the draft). You have to know what you’re looking at, depending on how far you go back. Are you getting yourself out of the (range of) the supposedly blue-chip type of players?
