Kapron Lewis-Moore ready to contribute on defense

Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE

Lewis-Moore had a solid rookie minicamp, coach John Harbaugh said.

He's not a rookie, even though this will be his first NFL season where he can play.

Kapron Lewis-Moore, a former Notre Dame defensive tackle selected in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL draft, sat out all of last year due to a torn ACL sustained in the 2013 BCS Championship against Alabama. He might've been a higher draft pick if it wasn't for the injury, as teams knew he wouldn't be able to produce as a rookie.

But now that his rehab is over, it's possible the Ravens got a steal with their investment. It wouldn't be out of the question to see Lewis-Moore contribute a bit in the defensive line rotation.

"Kapron looked good — no side effects from the knee that I could see. Now when he starts to load it with double-teams and things like that, coming off of them, I think we'll see more," Ravens coach John Harbaugh said during rookie minicamp. "But he said he's had some soreness in his hips and his lower back and things like that, which is expected, but nothing in his knee, so that was good."

With a clean bill of health, Lewis-Moore will look to get back to where he was wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks with the Fighting Irish.

It's a loaded unit right now. Lewis-Moore appears to fit in as a three-technique, though that position appears loaded right now. Brandon Williams, Timmy Jernigan, DeAngelo Tyson and Lewis-Moore will all compete for the starting spot that Arthur Jones held down before signing with the Colts earlier in free agency.

"It's going to be really competitive," Lewis-Moore told The Baltimore Sun. "We don't know until training camp comes. My thing is just really take it one day at a time. I'm actually thankful to be out here with the rookies and be on the field again."
