Rams met with versatile Michigan OL Karsen Barnhart before pro day

The offensive line has been a big priority for the Los Angeles Rams this offseason, already signing Kevin Dotson, Jonah Jackson and Alaric Jackson. They’re likely to draft at least one more lineman in April, whether it’s a backup tackle, guard or center.

Michigan’s Karsen Barnhart is a player to keep an eye on leading into the draft because the Rams seem to have some interest in him as a prospect. According to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, the Rams met with Barnhart on Thursday ahead of Michigan’s pro day Friday.

Barnhart is a versatile lineman who has started games at every position except for center, totaling 31 career starts. Last season, he primarily played right tackle, with 451 of his 836 snaps coming at that position for the national champion Wolverines.

Barnhart isn’t someone who will be drafted early, so the Rams will likely be eyeing him on Day 3 as a depth piece.
