Is Kapron Lewis-Moore overlooked?

October, 2, 2012
Kapron Lewis-Moore was essentially a three-year starter entering 2012. Problem was, he was also going to be a 2012 reserve after the emergence of ends Aaron Lynch and Stephon Tuitt last season.

The awkward situation disappeared once Lynch transferred to South Florida this past spring, and Lewis-Moore is once again a starter, along with being one of two defensive captains for Notre Dame. Fully recovered from a season-ending knee injury suffered in the seventh game of last season, the fifth-year senior has 10 tackles, half a sack and three quarterback hurries through four games for the nation's No. 3 scoring defense, despite playing with a calf injury suffered in the second game.

He has 33 career starts under his belt, and, despite not putting up the big pass-rushing numbers like fellow end Tuitt (six sacks), he has not gone unnoticed.

Scouts Inc.'s Steve Muench lists Lewis-Moore as one of two talented defensive linemenInsider — and one of four overlooked contributors — who could become steals in the 2013 NFL draft.

The post is on Insider, so you have to be a subscriber to read it, but Muench notes the 6-foot-4, 306-pound Lewis-Moore's ability against the run, saying a pro team could be lucky to land someone like him in the fourth round.
