Redskins | Kirk Cousins surprised about being taken

Washington Redskins QB Kirk Cousins said he was surprised to be taken by the Redskins but was told by head coach Mike Shanahan that they could not pass on him. "It is a little surprising. I was trying to forecast which teams would be in need of a quarterback, and I didn't see the Redskins thinking along those lines," Cousins said. "But coach Shanahan's words to me were that he couldn't pass me up, and he was excited to have me."
