CHICAGO — University of Iowa senior offensive lineman Andrew Donnal was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the fourth round of the 2015 NFL Draft on Saturday. Donnal was the 119th overall pick in the draft. Donnal is the third Iowa player selected, as offensive lineman Brandon Scherff was chosen in the first round (fifth selection overall) by Washington on Thursday and defensive lineman Carl Davis was selected by Baltimore in the third round Friday evening. Donnal is the 58th Hawkeye player under Kirk Ferentz to be drafted and the 14th offensive lineman.

Donnal (6-foot-7, 305 pounds) is a native of Montclova, Ohio, where he attended Anthony Wayne High School before joining the Hawkeye program. He earned honorable mention All-Big Ten accolades from Big Ten coaches as a senior. He started all 13 games at right tackle and played both guard and tackle throughout his career.


Donnal is the 25th Iowa player selected in the draft over the past six years. Iowa had two offensive linemen selected in the same draft for the first time since 2012, when Riley Reiff was a first round selection and Adam Gettis was selected in the fifth round.

Iowa has had at least one player drafted in every NFL Draft since 1978. The Hawkeyes have had three or more players selected in the NFL Draft in eight of the past nine years.

The Rams are coached by Jeff Fisher. Donnal was the fifth player selected by the Rams, including the first round selection of Georgia running back Todd Gurley. St. Louis also selected Wisconsin offensive lineman Robert Havenstein and Louisville offensive lineman Jamon Brown.
