Redskins Draft Kirk Cousins – Dumb Move [NoeBrainer]
The Washington Redskins made a stupid pick by drafting Kirk Cousins in the 4th round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Washington Redskins used their 4th-round pick to select Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the 2012 NFL Draft. This left a lot of people scratching their heads (including me) because the Redskins also selected Robert Griffin III with the second-overall pick. Washington traded three 1st-round picks and a 2nd-round pick to the St. Louis Rams to be able to draft RGIII.
This move doesn't make sense. There are plenty of talented players that are still available in the 4th round of the NFL Draft. The Redskins would have been much wiser if they used the pick on a non-quarterback. Especially, when you consider all of the picks the Skins had to ship to the Rams for RGIII.
I actually got plenty of backlash from some of the good people in the Capital Region on Monday's edition of "The Noe Show." Some callers think that this move actually makes sense. Hey, maybe the Redskins will have one of the better clipboard holders in the NFL. That's not going to help them get out of the basement of the NFC East though. This is a dumb move.
