The Redskins have stuck with their Texas theme and selected SMU cornerback Richard Crawford with the first of their two seventh-round selections. The 5-foot-11, 191-pound Crawford was a college teammate of guard Josh LeRiebus, Washington's third-round pick this year, and Aldrick Robinson, one of the Redskins selections in last year's sixth round. Crawford, a two-year starter who had previously played for Saddleback Community College, will have the chance to compete for a reserve job behind starters DeAngelo Hall and Josh Wilson.

Washington Redskins draft backup QB in 4th round

The Washington Redskins wasted no time finding a backup quarterback for Robert Griffin. The Redskins selected Kirk Cousins in the 4th round, and will likely allow him to compete with Rex Grossman for the backup role.

Washington Redskins release QB John Beck

The Washington Redskins already knew that they were going to move forward with a new “franchise” quarterback after they sacrificed their draft for the next three years in order to draft Baylor QB Robert Griffin III.

With the 2nd pick of the 2012 draft

Robert Griffin III (RG3) is your number two overall pick of the 2012 draft.  The Washington Redskins decided this is the direction they wanted to go in.  The right choice?  Probably not, then again they have seen 21 QBs in 19 years, so it can’t get much worst.  I am just not a fan of an run first throw second kind of QB.  There is a reason that Michael Vick, Randall Cunningham...
