What he brings: Cousins makes up for his average pocket mobility and arm strength with accuracy, sound decisions and leadership. He may never develop into a starter, but he could and should quickly develop into an excellent backup.
How he fits: At first glance, this looks like a luxury pick because his chances of competing with RG3 are minimal. But Cousins has the instincts and the skills to run Mike Shanahan's offense. He has a chance to run it more effectively early as RG3 learns the offense. He can be an excellent backup and he should be a great quarterback meeting teammate as these two young guys learn the system together.
Robinson is solid. Did a mock draft on another message board last week and he was one of the guys I ended up picking for the Skins in Round 4. Listed as an OLB, played OLB in the 4-3 at Texas, but probably best suited as an inside backer in the 3-4. May be the understudy to Fletcher.
One name to look out for in round 5/6 is David Molk, the Rimmington award-winning center out of Michigan. Undersized, but strong as hell (41 reps at the combine, second only to Dontari poe), and a high-character kid. Would fit the zone blocking scheme well.
We have bigger needs than backup QB. We pushed all in on 3 so... I don't see the need this year to have a clip boarder watching this year. I wanted a tackle or safety, get someone we actually think may get on the field this year.
No I am not an NFL GM, and yes Shanny must know better.
Why are the skins have the introduction for 3 while the draft is still going on? Surprised.
I guess they didn't much like Mo Hurt who they drafted last year, nor Chester who I thought did ok. Once we abandoned the solved stretch left and ran the toss, I thought they both did great at least run blocking. I dont know if the stats bear it out, just the eye test.
Here's to these new guards pulling and steamrolling somebody at full speed.
