Did the Redskins make a mistake by drafting another QB after RG3?
They did, however, raise some eyebrows when they drafted another QB, Michigan State product Kirk Cousins in the 4th round.
While there's no doubt that RG3 will be the starter from day 1, it might create a little unnecessary QB controversy.
Some people actually think that while Griffin is the bigger talent, Cousins might be more prepared to start immediately in an NFL offense.
Cousins has already been told that he's essentially a long term contingency plan, just in case anything happens to RG3.
RG3 actually supports the pick, and says he completely understands why the Redskins did it.
The biggest problem, in my opinion, is that the Redskins now have to develop two rookie quarterbacks, who play two entirely different styles. Will the Shanahans be able to properly develop both Griffin as the starter, AND Cousins as a viable backup?
Even if they're planning on trading Cousins sometime in the future, they'll have to somehow show that he's developing and has decent value.
