After his college career, he underwent his pre-draft test after which he was rated as the sixth best quarterback.

Sean Mannion was selected in the 2015 NFL Draft, 89th overall in the third round. He was a string quarterback in the team, behind Case Keenum and Nick Foles. In the 2016 season, Mannion who was the second string backup quarterback fell back as the third-string backup after Jared Goff took over the position. He was later elevated once again to second-string towards the end of the season.

In the subsequent seasons, the quarterback, though not as impressive as before, is working hard to get back on track.

Family – Parents, Wife

Sean Mannion was born to his parents; John Mannion, his father and Inga Mannion, his mother in Pleasanton, California. Sean must have gotten his sporty traits from his father who was the head football coach at Silverton High School in Oregon. John Mannion has spent a greater part of his life coaching various football teams.

Mannion left the city of California to Silverton where he coached for seven years and made impressive records for the team. In 1996 he became a coach at Sean’s Foothill High School in Pleasanton and won four sectional championships, as well as eight leagues for the team before he was made head coach in 2007. Sean often describes his father as his role model and accords him great respect for the impact he has in his life.

Sean Mannion may seem so entangled with his football career, but the quarterback has got another life away from the field. He is married to Megan Lopez. The couple got married in a private wedding ceremony with family and friends present in Oregon, 2016. The happy couple has been together since then. Sean and Megan dated for many years before deciding to tie the knot.
