St. Louis / Los Angeles Rams

Mannion was selected by the St. Louis Rams in the third round, 89th overall, of the 2015 NFL Draft. He started his career as the third-string quarterback behind Case Keenum and Nick Foles in his rookie year in 2015.

2015 season

Mannion played in his first NFL game of his career during a Week 12 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals in which the Rams lost 31–7. He was put in the game late in the fourth quarter, in relief of Nick Foles. He completed 6 passes out of 7 attempts for 31 yards, posting an 85.1 passer (QB) rating.

2016 season

Mannion started 2016 as the second-string backup quarterback behind starter Case Keenum and ahead of the first overall pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, Jared Goff. In the season-opening 0–28 loss against the San Francisco 49ers, Goff took over as the second-string quarterback, demoting Mannion back as the third-string backup quarterback. Mannion was promoted to second-string for the final two weeks of the season.

2017 season

In the season opener against the Indianapolis Colts, Mannion came into the game to finish up in relief of Goff after the Rams were up 46–9 and again in Week 15 when they were up 42–7 over the Seattle Seahawks.

Mannion was 20-of-34 for 169 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in the 34–13 loss.

2018 season
