New England Patriots

Mankins was drafted with the final pick of the first round, 32nd overall, in the 2005 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. Despite playing his entire collegiate career as a tackle, Mankins was moved to left guard by the Patriots, where immediately stepped into the starting lineup in place of Joe Andruzzi, who departed in free agency. Mankins started all 16 games for the Patriots in 2005. In an October 16 loss to the Denver Broncos, Mankins was ejected after striking Broncos defensive lineman Ebenezer Ekuban below the belt after a missed field goal. He would go on to be named to Pro Football Weekly's 2005 All-Rookie team.

In 2006, Mankins again started all 16 games for the Patriots. He scored his first NFL touchdown in the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts when he recovered a Laurence Maroney fumble in the end zone. (Later in that same game, Colts center Jeff Saturday also recovered a fumble for a touchdown, making that game the first playoff game in NFL history in which two offensive linemen scored touchdowns.) The 2007 season saw Mankins again start all 16 games en route to being named as a starting guard in the 2008 Pro Bowl and a second team All-Pro selection. For the fourth straight season, Mankins started all 16 games at left guard for the Patriots in 2008.

He was named to the Patriots' 50th anniversary team in August 2009. After starting in every game for the Patriots again in 2009, Mankins was selected as a starter to the 2010 Pro Bowl.
