NFL Draft 2012: After RG3 draft, Redskins take Kirk Cousins
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) - After Washington made a blockbuster trade to select Robert Griffin III second overall, the Redskins have drafted Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round.
The talented Cousins won 27 games as a three-year starter and with the pick coach Mike Shanahan may have created the kind of quarterback controversy that has often enveloped the Redskins
Cousins said on a conference call Saturday even he was a little surprised to be picked by Washington. He says he was "trying to forecast which teams would be looking at a quarterback and I didn't see the Redskins thinking along those lines, but coach Shanahan's words to me were that he couldn't pass me up."
The Redskins gave up three first-round picks and a second-round selection to take Griffin.
