From this fan’s perspective, after taking the dazzling Robert Griffin III at no. 2, why take another QB? The Redskins have needs along the O-line and in the defensive backfield which this fan would think rate higher than taking another QB.
Hopefully though, this pick means we’ve seen the last of ‘Sexy Rexy’.

On Saturday morning, ESPN’s Trent Dilfer suggested that quarterback Kirk Cousins will be a starter within a few years. Dilfer may want to revise that prediction now.
The Redskins picked Cousins with the 102nd pick in the 2012 draft, exactly 100 selections after Washington picked Robert Griffin III. The move comes 18 years after the Redskins selected Heath Shuler with the third overall pick, and Gus Frerotte at 197.
