Havenstein was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the second round (57th overall), in the 2015 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, Havenstein started 13 games at right tackle and didn't allow a sack all season. At the end of the season Havenstein was named to PFWA's All Rookie Team with Rams' teammate Todd Gurley.
On April 11, 2017, it was announced that Havenstein would be moved inside to guard after the signing of Andrew Whitworth, which would've moved left tackle Greg Robinson over to the right, Havenstein's previous position. However, after Robinson was traded to the Detroit Lions, Havenstein remained the Rams starting right tackle to start 2017.
On August 20, 2018, Havenstein signed a four-year contract extension with the Rams through the 2022 season. He started all 16 games in 2018 and helped Rams win 13 games and earned the second seed in the NFC. The Rams defeated the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional Round and the New Orleans Saints in the NFC Championship Game to reach Super Bowl LIII, where they would lose to the New England Patriots.
