What if the Browns can't work a trade up to the 2nd pick?

Would we be able to then swap our 6th pick for the Vikings 3rd and possibly only have to give up our second round pick this year? Pulled the below excerpt from Fox Sports, and Ross Jones is reporting it from the combine.

I don't see the Rams drafting either Luck or RGIII, and I know the Vikings GM is saying that they would look at those two if one of them slipped, but I can't see that happening since they used their 1st pick last year on Ponder. They could easily get Kalil with the 6th pick, and pick up another 2nd rounder as well.

Vikings flexible with No. 3 pick The Vikings sit third overall in the first round of the NFL Draft, but general manager Rick Spielman has interest in trading down.

"We are definitely open to moving," said Spielman who faced a crowd of media in Indianapolis Thursday afternoon. "We will look to take advantage and it will be very beneficial to our franchise." Although the Vikings selected quarterback Christian Ponder with the 12th overall pick last year, if either of the top two quarterbacks slip to the third spot Spielman noted that they would do their "due diligence on Andrew Luck and RG3."

Another option at the No. 3 spot for the Vikings would be addressing their offensive line woes. Spielman was asked about USC left tackle Matt Kalil: "He’s a very good left tackle with lengthy arms and a nasty demeanor."

Kalil comes from an NFL bloodline where his older brother Ryan was selected a few years back and has been a mainstay for the Carolina Panthers offensive line. "(Ryan Kalil) has turned out to be a great player in the NFL."
