Kirk Cousins   #8 QB

Height: 6-3   Weight: 202   Age: 30

Born: 8/19/1988 Barrington , IL

College: Michigan State

Experience: 7th season

High School: Holland Christian HS [MI]









Draft 2012

Pick No.102

Selected By: Washington Redskins

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 7 (102)

Pick Analysis: Cousins was a three-year starter, as well as a rare three-year captain, at Michigan State. He is a self-made guy, a tireless worker who has deficiencies that could hurt his pro potential. He is not a very strong deep thrower; while his velocity is adequate, his accuracy when throwing deep is questionable. Ultimately, Cousins is a guy who could get drafted based on his experience and intangibles, and will need to put on size and fine-tune certain throwing deficiencies to catch on at the next level. Based on the production and leadership at Michigan State, Cousins has late-round value to a team looking for someone to compete for a backup role.
