According to scouting reports, Mankins will add the caliber player to the Patriots interior line that they haven't had in a long time. A big strong nasty blocker that has polished his skills at the college level and should be able to step in if need be at the pro level quickly.

Known for being "technically sound", Mankins has excellent technique and shows good form, keeping his feet moving setting up his angles. His quickness and size will enable him to slide out to tackle or play guard depending upon teams needs.
