Twitter: Washington, with RG3, drafts Cousins
The fact Kirk Cousins lasted until the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft wasn’t the big surprise Saturday, believe it or not. No, it was the fact Washington, which mortgaged its future to draft Baylor Heisman Trophy QB Robert Griffin III at No. 2, selected Cousins. The selection had “Kirk Cousins” trending worldwide, and rightfully so. See some of the tweets in this post and listen to Cousins’ phone interview during the Michigan State spring game Saturday. Oh, and let’s not forget, congrats go out to Cousins.
No doubt, it’s an interesting pick. Let’s hope, for Cousins’ sake, the Redskins were making a value pick to use as trade bait. That has to be the case, right? Stay tuned. If not, Cousins has the makeup to make the most of the opportunity.
