The original Nexus 7 does support screen mirroring to Chromecast. This feature was added in Android 4.4, so if you're still using an old Android version on your Nexus 7, you'll need to do a system update. From the Settings app, go to Display then Cast screen. Don't bother with the Chromecast app at all. The option's in a different place on the S3, and it's ...
