With the 200th Pick in the NFL draft the Baltimore Ravens have selected Kapron Lewis-Moore. A defensive End from Notre Dame.
Moore was a much higher rated prospect but he tore his ACL in the BCS Championship game and has taken a huge tumble after the injury. Lewis-Moore was a major cog in the Notre Dame defensive line and he projects to the NFL as a 3-4 DE, just like he played in college. He gives the Ravens another rotation player in what is now an absurdly deep defensive front.
Lewis-Moore will likely spend his rookie year on injured reserve while he recovered from his torn ACL. It is very very unlikely that he plays a single snap at any point. He is purely a future pick. This is a fun way for the Ravens to keep all of their draft picks and not have to carry one on the 53 man roster. Smart move by Ozzie and company.
The Ravens have 3 more picks in the draft and are currently on the clock with pick 203 as I write. Come back shortly for an update on that pick.
I believe the Ravens might have also had interest in Arkansas WR Cobi Hamilton who was taken at 197 shortly before the Ravens came on the clock.
