Brandon McManus (Temple) - We have worked with Brandon since his high school days and his long levers and fast leg have allowed him to hit some huge kicks with us over the years. Brandon's kicking has always been a little more consistent than his punting. His senior year he seemed to make a big jump in the consistency and repeatability of his punting motion. Brandon was 14 for 17 on FG his senior season at Temple. He was 6 of 7 on FG over 40 yards away. Brandon averaged 45.1 yards a punt in 2012. He has the tools to be an NFL specialist.
