Player Overview

Like many before him at Wisconsin, Havenstein is a massive road-grader whose size and physicality helped pave the way for a dominating running game, earn All-American notice and a shot at the Senior Bowl, where he impressed.

Picture of dependability tied the school record with 54 games played, including starting 41 consecutively at right tackle to end his career.

No-frills type who relies on his bulk and power to get movement at the line of scrimmage. His length makes him relatively effective in pass protection but his agility and balance are not NFL-quality.

Height limits him to right tackle, where he can deliver consistently enough as a run blocker to compete for a starting role but limitations as a pass blocker could leave his team searching for an upgrade.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Mammoth man with thickness throughout. Stout with the strength to absorb contact and hold his ground. Physical mauler with the ideal OL mentality. Great length to protect the edge. Adequate initial quickness for a man his size. Could charge cab fare to get around him due to his height and long reach (33 1/2-inch arms). Flashes ability to surprise with initial quickness as a run blocker, getting to the second level fairly fluidly for a man of his size. Highly dependable player who played in 55 games over the past four years (Senior Bowl included).

WEAKNESSES: Limited to right guard in the NFL with ordinary athleticism for the position and will be vulnerable against NFL speed rushers. Lacks elite lateral quickness with some hip and joint stiffness that keeps him from being a natural bender. Tends to bend at the waist. Will overextend himself with inconsistent body control. Surprisingly quick to the second level but fails to re-direct to hit moving targets.

05/05/2015 - After selecting running back Todd Gurley in the first round of the draft, the Rams' game plan entering Day 2 was to upgrade their offensive line and add a quarterback. They were able to do that with the choice of two offensive linemen and quarterback Sean Mannion thanks to a trade with Carolina that provided them with an extra third-round pick. The Rams moved from 41 to 57 in the third round, and were confident doing that because, as head coach Jeff Fisher said, "At that point, our group (of targets) was large. It was good. We felt like we had a chance just to trade out. Really looking at the group, we also thought the three was probably a little more important than a four and a five."

Trade talks were occurring with as many as five teams, but a lesser move down would have yielded just a fourth- or fifth-round choice. By making the deal with the Panthers, the Rams received not only the third-round choice, but also one in the sixth round. They added tackles Rob Havenstein with the second-round pick and Jamon Brown with the first third-rounder, but Brown is likely headed for right guard. Havenstein will compete for a starting job at right tackle. "He is ready to play," general manager Les Snead said of Havenstein. "(He) started a ton of games - never missed any. They run the ball well up there. He's just a guy that knows his strengths and weaknesses and how to use them." Describing Havenstein and Brown, Fisher said, "We've got two big, strong, physical players that extend plays, that finish plays, that go downfield. They're mauler-type. They're very, very aggressive, so they're going to fit our style. "We're building this team for the future and I think we're establishing an identity right now." - The Sports Xchange
