Great point but it is going to be a hard sell IMO. He is very unlikely to get a lot of playing time and he isn't a 2nd round pick which even lessons his chances.

I personally don't see what the big deal is. I also don't consider a 4th round pick to be a "premium" pick either.

If RG3 gets hurt you don't want to trot Grossman or Beck out there. Get Cousins in early, teach him the playbook along with RG3, and if something were to happen to RG3, Cousins would be ready to go.

Backup QBs are more important than some people realize. The Chiefs started Tyler Palko last year for FOUR GAMES. The Redskins must have seen that. I think it was a solid pick in case some **** goes down.

So Philly was gonna draft Cousins in the 4th after drafting Foles in the 3rd? Fail.

Imma agree with V-diddy here.

I don't see what the problem is and I think people are just hungry for controversy. There really isn't one, #2 pick over >>>>>>>>> 4th round pick. Only a complete idiot, which seein the everyday sports fan there are many, would start calling for Cousins if RG3 struggles a bit, especially in a rookie season.

I have no problem with spending a 4th round pick on a backup QB. It's really not that different than spending a 4th round pick on a specialists who will never start (like when the Lions and Packers spent fourth round picks on nickel defense pass rushers).

The difference is that those nickel pass rushers will likely see the field at some point. Defense is all about packages and they will get a chance to contribute. If RGIII goes as planned Cousins will never see the field.

Barring a legendary iron man at QB (which you never see coming) the backup QB will end up playing at some point. This is especially relevant in the NFC East which is full of talented pass rushers.
