Round 4, pick 102 overall--KIrk Cousins, QB, Michigan StateThe Redskins got their quarterback of the future on Thursday in Robert Griffin III and they got his backup in Cousins. At 6-3 he has the size to get it done and has adequate arm strength. Cousins was a three-year captain for the Spartans and brings great leadership skills.One would expect that Cousins will be a backup behind last years starter Rex Grossman and Robert Griffin III, the teams top draft pick and projected 2012 starter.It was a little surprising, said Cousins in a conference call with Redskins reporters. I was trying to forecast which teams would be in need of a quarterback and I didnt see the Redskins.
