Could Matt Kalil Fall From The Third Pick?

Since the beginning of time, the draft has been continually mocked with Andrew Luck at number one, Robert Griffin III at number two, and Matt Kalil at number three to the Vikings. It's not really a big surprise that the Vikings would be doing their homework on other players at the spot - namely, Justin Blackmon and Morris Claiborne - but according to Adam Schefter, the Vikings' interest in all three is a real thing.

The Vikings probably could still end up taking Kalil, but let's assume for the sake of assumption they don't. Kalil probably slides past the Browns, Buccaneers, Rams and Jaguars, as they all have higher priority needs than offensive tackle; that would set him at about the eighth position, and it's possible he could slide a bit further. If Kalil does slide, is it conceivable the Bears could jump up and snag the best left tackle in the draft, and what would it take to get there?
