04/29/2012 - After trading three first-round picks and a second-round selection to choose Robert Griffin III second overall on Thursday, the Redskins drafted Michigan State quarterback Kirk Cousins with the seventh choice in the fourth round. But coach Mike Shanahan doesn't think he has created a typical Washington quarterback controversy although Cousins won 27 games as a three-year starter for the Spartans. "Any time you get a quarterback like Robert in the second pick of a draft ... he's your franchise quarterback," Shanahan said. "He's going to be your quarterback for the next decade. (Kirk) knows he's going to be a backup ... but there (are) injuries. I thought it was a steal for us." Washington was the first team to select two quarterbacks during the first four rounds since Green Bay in 1989. The last time the Redskins chose a quarterback in the top 10 before Griffin was in 1994 when they took Heath Shuler. He was eventually beaten out by Gus Frerotte, whom the Redskins chose in the seventh round that year. Before the third day of the draft was done, the Redskins cut John Beck, who nearly beat out Rex Grossman to be the opening day starter in 2011 but performed poorly in his three starts. Cousins, who won 27 games as a three-year starter, is undeniably talented, but coach Mike Shanahan created the kind of quarterback controversy that has often enveloped the Redskins. "It is a little surprising," Cousins said on a conference call. "I was trying to forecast which teams would be looking at a quarterback and I didn't see the Redskins thinking along those lines, but coach Shanahan's words to me were that he couldn't pass me up." - The Sports Xchange
