Mankins was drafted in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He unfortunately didn't win a Super Bowl with the Patriots, but played in both Super Bowl losses to the Giants. Even in his later years, Mankins was a dependable guard that never took a play off and has been missed ever since he was traded. He made the Pro Bowl in seven of his 11 seasons.
