Logan Lee Mankinscite web|title=Mankins on Pro-Football-Reference |work=rbref.com |url=http://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/M/MankLo20.htm |accessdate=2007-12-20] (born March 10, 1982 in Catheys Valley, California) is an American football offensive lineman for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Patriots in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft with the 32nd overall pick. He is known for his aggressive play at the guard position.

Football career

Mankins attended Mariposa High School in Mariposa, California, where he was an All-League performer and the team co-MVP with Anthony Dicioccio. After a standout high school career, Logan Mankins attended Fresno State University blocking for New York Giants (and former Houston Texans) quarterback David Carr.

In 2005, he started all 16 games after being drafted by the New England Patriots, making him one of just three rookies to do so in 2005, helping to justify his status as a first-round pick to early critics who considered him a "reach" in the first round. On October 16, he was ejected during the Patriots' loss to the Denver Broncos after striking defensive lineman Ebenezer Ekuban below the belt following a missed convert|53|yd|m|sing=on field goal try by Adam Vinatieri.

On January 21, 2007, Mankins recovered a fumble by teammate Laurence Maroney in the end zone for the first touchdown of the AFC Championship Game against the Indianapolis Colts. (Later in that same game, Colt 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.)

On December 18, 2007 Logan Mankins was selected to the 2008 Pro Bowl as a starting guard for the AFC squad; he was also voted to the 2007 All-Pro second team.

Personal

Mankins, who grew up on a convert|10000|acre|km2|sing=on ranch, is his father's partner on a prize-winning rodeo roping team.

The rock band "The Definitives" wrote a song in honor of him in 2007 entitled "Mankins".
