Washington Redskins quarterback coach Matt LaFleur was interviewed by Grant Paulsen of 106.7 the Fan in DC via The Washington post. One of the questions he was asked, was why they drafted Kirk Cousins in the fourth round. “The last team was Dallas (taking both Troy Aikman and Steve Walsh), and it worked out pretty well for them. … I thought Kirk would’ve been gone long before the fourth round, and when he’s sitting there, and you have a high grade on him, it’s like you can’t lose with that pick, in my opinion. You can never have enough good players, especially at arguably the most important position of all of sports. This is a nasty game where some times things happen, and you have to go with somebody else, so we want to make sure we’re secure at that position. “Any time you give up what we did to get Robert, it’s pretty clear how we feel. But like I said, things happen, and your next guy has to be ready to go. … I personally think it’ll be a great thing. You’ve got two guys coming in here and they’ll get the chance to grow together and learn together and study together. … Both of those guys have intangibles off the charts. There’s no doubt in my mind they’ll get along great and really push each other to be better players.” Like I’ve said before, I think the Redskins made a great move by drafting Cousins and you can read why I feel that way right here.
