NFL Mock Draft 2012: Could Matt Kalil Still Be Available At No. 6?

If the St. Louis Rams traded down from the No. 2 overall pick, in the process acquiring three first round picks and a second round round pick, and still got arguably the third best prospect in the draft at No. 6 overall, would that be considered a "best case scenario?" That would be something to ponder if the latest 2012 mock draft from SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber holds true.

In that mock, Van Bibber has Kalil sliding to the Rams at six, after the Minnesota Vikings select LSU Tigers CB Morris Claiborne and the Cleveland Browns pull the trigger and take Texas A&M Aggies QB Ryan Tannehill. Even Van BIbber seems slightly skeptical that things would play out this way, but the succession of picks isn't implausible. After all, Gaines Adams, Levi Brown and LaRon Landry were all once selected ahead of Adrian Peterson.
