The Redskins selected two quarterbacks in this year's draft. Everyone knows about the RG3 draft, but Kirk Cousins getting selected early in the fourth round left a lot of people wondering what the end game truly is in Washington.
Surely Coach Shanahan isn't trying to create a positional controversy already? It appears all but guaranteed that Robert Griffin III will be the heir apparent to the starting spot for 2012, so what's the deal with drafting the Minnesota State star?
Many are speculating that the Redskins are hoping to develop a quality backup that they can later trade for a second round pick, ala Matt Schaub, Matt Flynn or even Matt Cassell. But it seems that you need to be named "Matt" in order for that to occur.
Depending on which way the team approaches his development, this could be a very smart move, or a very stupid one. In either case, having Cousins on the bench for a while surely can't hurt anything. There's a QB out there that was taken in the very late rounds from Michigan that developed into a pretty solid player. Tom Brady, I'm not sure if you've heard of him.
And no, I'm not comparing the two players in terms of talent, simply in circumstance. For every Tom that's discovered there's a hundred or so Jamarcus Russels, Heath Schulers and Ryan Leafs. But it's an interesting thought, isn't it?
