I have no problems with the Cousins pick. 2nd/3rd round talent taken in the 4th, that will provide good depth between RG3, and speed up the departure of Sexy Rexy from the roster. Win/Win IMO.

And if anyone thinks adding Cousins creates a QB controversy in DC, well they are smoking something they shouldn't.

It doesn't bother me that we used 3 picks on QB. It was by far our weakest position and it's by far the most important position. I'm not saying it would have been my choice, but it's understandable.
I don't think it's understandable at all to use three picks on a QB. Only one can play at a time.

And the Massie reasoning is completely bunk.

From the Scouts, Inc. scouting report:

Quick enough to get into position and drives legs. Footwork could be crisper but has lateral mobility and balance to develop into an effective zone blocker.

So what seems more credible, a scouting report written by a professional scouting service, or the statement of a hockey message board poster?

I am still a bit miffed about taking the QB. There was value sure. Good player, etc but I still don't see the need for a 4th spent to get a 3rd stringer. I guess he is just insurance, or maybe they think he can beat out Rex.

I wonder what 3 thinks about it, but we know what he will say.

I would rather that pick have gone to the OL; or to get a S. We already committed to the kid, so lets roll. That's why I like Rex, no backup QB drama.

Cousins is a fine pick, I suppose. Best case he gets into some preseason games and some regular season games (if RGIII were to get injured) and shows enough that other teams want him and the Skins trade him for a higher pick(s) ala Kevin Kolb. Worst case in my mind is that he is a decent backup. Hell, it could also serve as more motivation for RGIII. I would have liked to pick up a corner earlier in the draft, I liked Brandon Boykin a lot and was pissed he went to the Eagles.

Didn't really know any of the other players that were selected. Looks like we got some solid Oline depth, hope some of those players develop into some starters down the road.

I appear to be lost, how did we use 3 picks on QBs?

First rounder on RG3 + 2nd rounder to trade up for RG3 + 4th rounder on Cousins.

So they used their 1st, 2nd, and 4th round picks this year to get 2 QBs.

@Redskins: Shanahan called QB Kirk Cousins a "steal" in the fourth round. Took him to improve team's depth.

@Redskins: Shanahan clarification on late-round DB's: Crawford will be used as a cornerback, Bernstine will be used as a safety.

@MikeJonesWaPo: Shanahan told Griffin this morning there was chance they would take QB today, and that it was no reflection on him.

@Massie can't play in a zbs. Complete BS. He has the athleticism and quickness, I was stunned we passed on him. Jammal Brown was another guy people said couldn't play in a zbs.

Tom Compton is a nice get though, raw but an ideal fit.

Grant Garner, C, Oklahoma State
Michael Shaw, RB, Michigan
Eain Smith, S, WVU

Minnifield signing is awesome, guessing his surgery kept him from being drafted

Signed T Ogelsby from Wisconsin. Huge kid, injury issues but could be an NFLer.

Per the NFL Skins Position of Needs list, we hit on all of them. Even though they have not said we got a S, we did IMO.

I thought it was a solid draft. Did a big WTF @ the Cousins picks but... like I said insurance is never a bad thing.

I trust Shanny to hit on some of these later round picks.

The most important player on your team is the QB. The second most is the backup QB, tis just true.

If Cousins can become our next Todd Collins, I'm fine with that.

'Tis not even remotely close to true.

The second most important player on the team is the blindside offensive tackle.
