6. Jeremiah Moon could make the Baltimore Ravens roster

The Baltimore Ravens are giving Jeremiah Moon as many chances as possible to make the roster. He was third on the defensive side of the football in snaps played this preseason, and he led the Ravens in snaps in the preseason finale. Moon also started the past two games, so he gets work early and late into these games.

Moon is also fourth on the roster in special teams snaps. It is showing that the teams want to put him in a spot where they can activate him on Sundays. That is a huge step towards making the roster.

Moon is in a good spot mainly because of the injury to Tyus Bowser. First, this opens a roster spot, although the signing of Jadeveon Clowney does take one away. Still, Bowser has a specific role that involves playing off of the football, and it is tough to replace that.

Moon has dropped into coverage 17 times. For comparison, David Ojabo dropped four times, Tavius Robinson at seven, and Malik Hamm was at 11. This shows that they were looking at him specifically in the Bowser role. Hamm was in a similar spot, but he did not play in the last preseason game and is a rookie UDFA who seems destined for the practice squad.

A lot has fallen into place for Moon to make the roster. Will it happen?
