Re: 2012 NFL Draft Day 3

I like the pick in a vacuum, but I would have preferred secondary or OL depth.

As a Big 10 season ticket holder, I like Cousins a lot. Tougher than dirt, great, great attitude and talented enough.

Waaaaaaay better than Ricky Stanzi, who I think a lot of people here liked last year.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Day 3

I haven't been following the draft too much. I can't belive there are no other high-quality players availalbe now. I know we need a solid back-up, but there are other positions that should have been addressed with this pick. It will be real intersting to see what the next pick is.

04/23/12 - NFL DRAFT TOP QUARTERBACKS: Kirk Cousins, Michigan State, 6-3, 214, 2-3...Descriptions and statistics on Cousins might be hard to evaluate. He has good size, played four years in a pro system including two as captain, is a great citizen in the community, a strong team leader on the field and has already graduated with a 3.68 GPA in kinesiology. As far as statistics, Cousins is MSU's career record holder in passing touchdowns (66), passing yards (9,131), completions (723) and passing efficiency (146.1 rating). After that he was impressive in both Senior Bowl workouts and the game, and then did well at the scouting combine and looked even better at his pro day. Perhaps the only obvious wart on his list of achievements is that his career statistics include a total of minus-127 yards rushing, which may be revealing. Cousins is football smart and performs well within the system, but when things go awry he does not have the knack or arm as a passer, nor the athleticism as a runner, to make good things happen. In fact, closer analysis of his stats shows that an inordinate amount of completions and yards were either screens or very short passes. His arm strength and passing velocity are less than scouts want, but they are still intrigued by his advanced understanding of a pro-like passing system and excellent anticipation. Despite his statistical accuracy (64 percent completions), Cousins does not place the ball well to help yards after the catch and if he is unable to throw in rhythm his effectiveness declines noticeably. Cousins broke his ankle coming out of high school and after being ignored by most big schools was set to go to Toledo until Mark Dantonio was hired as MSU's head coach. After failing to get his preferred quarterbacks, Dantonio offered Cousins a chance and it paid off. In that regard, there is a chance history might repeat. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange

Kevin Kolb went for a 2nd and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie

Harbaugh is doing trade talks via skype, intimidating opposing GMs.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Day 3

I'm not saying this is going to happen (man, I hope not) but the last time we drafted a QB high in the first round we also drafted a QB in the 7th. The 7th rounder beat out the other QB for the starting job in their first year! Name those QB's.

3 years down the road, we might get a willing buyer for Cousins for more than one sleeper pick in the 4th round.

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Day 3

Speaking of value. Everyone complaining about LeRibs value on ESPN and other draft sites. Scouts Inc had Cousins graded as a second round pick (83)

Re: 2012 NFL Draft Day 3

Lol, Jaws calling the drafting of Cousins a QB controversy. Same guy who said Campbell was going to be the best QB of the 2005 draft.

It's true for a small minority of fans though. :FIREdevil:.
