 ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams addressed their biggest pre-NFL draft need in the second round Friday night, taking Wisconsin offensive tackle Rob Havenstein with the 57th overall selection.
   St. Louis began the draft with six picks after averaging more than nine the previous three years and took Georgia running back Todd Gurley in the first round. They added picks in the third and sixth rounds by trading down 16 picks with Carolina.
   The 6-foot-7, 321-pound Havenstein was a three-year starter at right tackle. Wisconsin set a school record last season averaging 320.1 rushing yards, third in the nation.
   The Rams have only two offensive line starters back. Veterans Jake Long and Scott Wells were released and tackle Joe Barksdale is an unrestricted free agent.
