As others have said, a good back up quarterback is worth his weight in gold... even burgundy and gold.
Or would you rather be seeing Beck and Grossman again? He is as valuable as any other back-up and frankly moreso because he gets to prep the defense each week.
his value is probably dropping until he starts and does well; a 5th or 6th.
still think we should have taken the top rated....err most mobile RT instead, and had Rex as our backup this year.
Focus on grooming a backup a year or 2 later instead
maybe, just maybe there was a reason all the other GM's passed on him? Hitting a homer on 2 QBs in 1 draft must not happen often. There likely just arent enough snaps to go around for it to come to fruition.

I would trade him for rodgers, brady or schaub. Would be nice to have an even higher quality backup for RG3. Maybe they throw in a 2nd round pick as well.

Good back up quarterbacks are an absolute necessity. Our QB situation was the worst in the NFL, and Shanny had a shot to end that by drafting Kirk. I had no problem with it, and I still have no problem with it. I can guarantee you that a lot of other teams were not happy when we grabbed him.
I don't think we drafted him so we could trade him later, I think we drafted him because Shanny liked him a lot. I see a lot of potential in Kirk. Maybe I'm watching a different player than some people on here.

We pretty much already lost the gamble baring some amazing play for him during a regular season game. The earliest we'll be able to trade him is probably 1-2 years from now and we'll be lucky to get a 2nd. It's pretty much going to be like 2012 4th round pick + time and effort for a 2014 2nd round pick, not worth it imo
WE need to keep Kirk Cousins he has proven to be a QB that can developed into a starter, & with the hits RGIII has taken in his rookie season, how long will it take before he takes a concusion hit like Mike Vick did this season We need a back up who can start, do you really want to relay on Rex Grossman?

Great you find a QB who has been inactve the whole season a viale option, in that case we should've kept D. McNabb

Currently, the greatest worth Cousins has is as a backup QB to Griffin. If he was selected by the Shanahans, and in the 4th round, I think that's a pretty strong indication that he has the talent and potential to be a franchise QB like Griffin.
Unfortunately, he won't get much time unless Griffin is injured or we start blowing out teams early. Compacting the problem is after guys like Cassel and Kolb, like other posters mentioned, teams will be more leery of the asking price of trading for backup quarterbacks with potential.
I think our best option, emotionally, at this point is going on and assuming Cousins will be nothing more than a good backup for us and being pleasantly surprised with anything else we get from him. Whether that be good, meaningful playing time, or a draft pick or player or two. I thought Cousins should have gone way before he did and to a more quarterback-needy team, but I'm happy and trust him with running the offense, especially with more time learning the offense.
This is pretty simple to me Cousins was by far the highest rated player on our draft board when we picked and just represented to much value to pass up in the opinion of our front office. Unless you have spent countless hours watching tape of college prospects and watched hundreds of them up close its really hard to argue with the grade we gave Cousins. I may be biased in this though as I just dint like the concept of drafting for need - I'm a BPA guy taking into account your long term roster development and scheme needs.
As to future value - far to early to start talking about this. Another strong preseason and maybe some nice tape in mop up duty and I can totally see a QB needy team giving us a 3rd round pick. If he has to play in a couple of games and does really well then it becomes a 2nd. If he never sees the field in regular season - which is what we all really hope - then he might stay his full rookie deal and walk as a free agent for nothing.
