OWINGS MILLS, Md. — The Ravens continued adding to their front seven with the selection of a second defensive end in Notre Dame’s Kapron Lewis-Moore in the sixth round on Saturday.
Lewis-Moore tore his ACL in the BCS national championship game against Alabama, which could equate this to the Ravens taking a long-term chance on the hefty defensive lineman. At 6-foot-4 and 298 pounds, the Fighting Irish co-captain has the prototypical size for a defensive end in a 3-4 system.
Only speaking to the Ravens briefly at the scouting combine in February, Lewis-Moore admitted surprise when he received the call from general manager Ozzie Newsome while he was out buying a sandwich.
“Me and my agent — we were still pretty hopeful late round, but in the middle of the sixth, I was kind of losing a little hope,” Lewis-Moore in a conference call. “I was just like, ‘Hey, let me just go get a sandwich. Whatever happens, happens.’ Obviously, the phone started going off. I saw the Baltimore area code, and I was like, ‘Whoa!'”
He was a four-year starter at Notre Dame and finished his career with 180 tackles, 12 sacks, and 22 tackles for a loss.
Considering his status remains in doubt for the 2013 season, Lewis-Moore is in a good spot with the opportunity to learn from veteran mentors on the defensive line such as Haloti Ngata, Chris Canty, and Marcus Spears. His body of work at Notre Dame suggests he could be a factor in the future, but it’s difficult to overlook the fact that he’s sustained knee injuries in each of his last two seasons at Notre Dame.
