07/09/2012 - Top-five Temple prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft: 5. K Brandon McManus (6-3, 190)...In the 2012 NFL Draft, four kickers were selected, the most in a single draft since 1993, proving that the NFL is always looking for fresh legs. Entering his senior season in 2012, McManus has a chance to establish himself as a legitimate draftable prospect for next year's draft. A Philadelphia native, he saw immediate playing time as a true freshman and has played in every game the past three seasons, handling both the kicking and punting duties. Although he battled some inconsistencies over his first two years, McManus set several school records last season as a junior, including extra points made (50 - all consecutive) and punting average (45.8). He also finished with 98 points which would have been the new program record had it not been for running back Bernard Pierce's extremely productive junior season. Over his career, McManus is 46-for-66 (70.0%) on field goals and 126-for-130 (96.9%) on extra point attempts. With less experience returning to the Temple offense, there is a good chance McManus, who also had experience on kickoffs, will receive more field goal opportunities to prove to scouts he can kick at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
