Re: 2012 Draft Pick (not RG3) Who'll Have Biggest Impact This Year

I'm actually going to say Kirk Cousins. There are plenty of rules in place to protect QBs in the NFL but the bottom line is most starting QBs don't make it through the entire season without getting hurt at some point. With Griffin's stature, only slightly more sturdy than Michael Vick, I'd expect him to get dinged and miss two games this year.

I'm counting on Cousins to beat out Grossman for the 2nd job, based mostly on the fact that Rex is a known commodity (a sucky one). He can come in and maybe win a game, or maybe blow it. Giving Cousins the backup role will further enhance his value as a trade chip, too, especially if he comes in relief of Griffin and wins us a game or two.

Backup QB is an important position in the NFL, even if he only plays for 2 games, Cousins would be the most important player on the field during those 2 games.

That and nobody else in the rookie class stands out to me as a big impact guy.

Poor Tom Compton. Even his own mother voted for LeRibeus.

Great post and solid argument. The concerns over RGIII durability are real, but I hope the comparison with Vick (which many have made) turn out to be wrong. Vick holds the ball too long and tries to extend busted plays when he should toss it out of bounds or slide, take a knee etc. I really hope RGIII learns to get rid of the ball quickly and literally avoids contact whenever possible.

Griffin is far more intelligent than Vick, both on the field and off.

That's all I'll say about that.

I voted Morris, but I will go out on a limb and say that Richard Crawford leads the team with 5 interceptions.

Re: 2012 Draft Pick (not RG3) Who'll Have Biggest Impact This Year

I went with Crawford.. Against the starters Morris (outside of his first carry) didn't do anything particularly special. I think Royster is still ahead of him and will be our leading rusher this year.

Crawford has the chance to be the 3rd CB by midseason as well as the primary return specialist if (when) Banks gets cut.

I'm hoping LeRib and Gettis don't play much so that means our starting OL remains healthy all season. Both of them will benefit from a year learning and getting more acclimated to the pro game in practice. I'd like to consider them as possible starters in '13 than them getting much playing time this season.
