The Burgundy Warpath: NFL Draft Round 4 Recap


Round 4

102. Kirk Cousins, QB, Michigan State

Cousins was an interesting pick, to say the least. Comments from Coach Shanahan corroborated theories that it was a "best player" or "value" pick, along with adding depth to a position that is in definite need of some work. Cousins is a 6'3″ 214lb. QB with all the intagibles to become a pro. He's not nearly as fast as Robert Griffin, but that shouldn't be expected. Cousins is known for his accuracy and safe decision making in the short to intermediate range (Value for the Redskins West Coast Offense), but some say he lacks deep-ball arm strength. His biggest playing card will be his management capabilities. As a three-year starter, he does have the snaps NFL scouts are looking for under his belt. Look for Cousins to be a safe backup option for RGIII sometime mid-season.

119. Keenan Robinson, OLB, Texas

This draft was all about depth. There were positions going into the offseason that had next to nobody to fill. Robinson is a great all-around athlete that is relatively quick for his position. Running a 4.79 40-yard dash has its cons, though. He apparently has a tendency to play "lazy" because he is "so fast". Whatever the fuck that means. I see it as him not having to go full blast, if 90% speed is more than enough to run down a back. He does have issues shedding blocks, but will serve as potential depth behind Orakpo or Kerrigan.

Head over to The Burgundy Warpath for Rounds 5-7.
