There has been a lot of talk surrounding the Washington Redskins’ selection of quarterback Kirk Cousins in the fourth round of the NFL Draft. But John Keim of the Washington Examiner believes that the controversial nature of the selection was created by the media.
“I don’t understand the vitriol,” Keim said, via Blog Talk Radio. “Honestly, it’s ridiculous. I have not talked to national writers, but I have talked to scouts, GMs, former GMs, personnel directors. Nobody has blasted them the way some other people have.”
“Most people around the league view (Cousins) as a backup type,” Keim added.
Cousins was the second quarterback taken by Washington in the Draft, after Robert Griffin III, the second overall pick.
