Kapron Lewis-Moore Could Potentially Replace Arthur Jones

Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE

The sixth round pick spent his entire rookie season on Injured Reserve after tearing his ACL in his final collegiate game.

As the Baltimore Ravens begin the annual process of rejuvenating their roster, questions surround defensive end Arthur Jones. Jones finished the season with 53 tackles and 4 sacks, proving to be a dominant force on the defensive line.

Unfortunately for the Ravens, Jones has played himself into an expensive contract as an unrestricted free agent that the team will most likely be unable to afford.

Fortunately for the Ravens, a potential replacement for Jones was drafted in the sixth round of last year’s draft in Kapron Lewis-Moore from Notre Dame University.

Lewis-Moore started his senior season on a Notre Dame defense that propelled the team to an undefeated regular season and an appearance in the BCS Championship Game. At 6’4" and 300 lbs, Lewis-Moore played 3 and 5 technique in Notre Dame’s 3-4 defense.

Lewis-Moore finished his senior season with 40 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 6 sacks, 2 pass break up, 2 forced fumbles, and 9 quarterback hurries. Despite these impressive statistics, Lewis-Moore fell to the sixth round due to a torn ACL suffered in the BCS Championship Game one year ago and spent his entire rookie season on Injured Reserve. His junior season was also ended early due to an MCL injury.

When healthy, Lewis-Moore is closer to a second or third round pick than a sixth. A powerful run stuffer and edge setter, Lewis-Moore will be able to attack single blockers and take on double teams, allowing linebackers to roam free and make tackles.

Any question as to Lewis-Moore’s toughness was answered when played well against former top five pick offensive tackle Matt Kalil… without an MCL. Imagine what Kapron Lewis-Moore will be able to do with all of his knee ligaments against lesser offensive tackles than Kalil.
