Draft Scout Snapshot:DS Rating on 09/27/09 (Before injury): #3 Soph QB Given that the Redskins seemed to have chosen SMU guard Josh LeRibeus way too early in the third round and their other picks were all fourth-rounders on down, their draft was all about quarterbacks. They traded their first-rounders this year, next year and 2014 and their second-rounder this year to St. Louis to move up four spots to select Baylor's Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III second overall. And then they used their third pick, the seventh selection in the fourth round, on Michigan State's three-year starter, Kirk Cousins. The move hearkens back to 1994, the last draft in which the Redskins chose a quarterback in the top 10 when they picked Heath Shuler third overall. He was eventually beaten out by Gus Frerotte, a seventh-rounder in the same draft. BEST PICK: Quarterback Robert Griffin III: The strong-armed, swift Griffin is the perfect new leader for a team that has started 21 quarterbacks over the last 19 seasons and has lacked a face of the franchise for nearly as long. Griffin is expected to be the opening day starter replacing holdover Rex Grossman. - The Sports Xchange
