Draft Scout Nick O''Leary News
12/21/15 - TE Nick O'Leary, promoted from the practice squad two weeks ago, made the first reception of his NFL career and it was a catch and run for 37 yards.
12/09/15 - A few teams were reportedly inquiring about signing rookie sixth-round draft pick Nick O'Leary off the Bills' practice squad, so the team decided to promote the tight end to the 53-man roster Tuesday. To make room for O'Leary, the Bills released veteran blocking tight end Matthew Mulligan. The timing of the move is that Mulligan had just played a key role on the winning touchdown against Houston last Sunday, running a clear-out route that freed Charles Clay down the middle of the field.
O'Leary was a receiving threat for Florida State, catching 81 passes for 1,175 yards and 13 touchdowns in his final two seasons, but he struggled with blocking, and that's a skill the Bills require from their tight ends in coordinator Greg Roman's offense. However, they apparently think he can develop, and he's certainly a more viable threat in the passing game than the 267-pound Mulligan, who is strictly a blocker.
