Draft Scout Nick O''Leary News
01/09/14 - While Fisher loses Jernigan, it has been a good two days for the program with left guard Josue Matias, tight end Nick O'Leary and running back Karlos Williams announcing they will return to the Seminoles in 2014. That came on the heels of left tackle Cameron Erving, wide receiver Rashad Greene and right guard Tre' Jackson announcing Wednesday they will return to Tallahassee in 2014. Mathias is currently rated as the No. 6 junior guard by NFLDraftScout.com, O'Leary the No. 6 junior tight end and Williams was widely expected to return to school. He has played only one year at running back for the Seminoles after converting from safety, and is in line for increased playing time with James Wilder forgoing his senior season. "I'm very excited that Karlos, Josue and Nick have decided to stay and continue their careers at Florida State," Fisher said. "They're more pieces to the puzzle of our success. They've all contributed to helping the program get to where we are today. We believe another season will help them continue to develop and expand on their NFL potential." - The Sports Xchange

09/11/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: TE Nick O'Leary, who, despite being the nation's top tight end recruit out of high school, didn't quite live up to the hype his first two seasons in Tallahassee with just four total touchdowns. But he more than made up for that in his first game as a junior, when he scored three times. O'Leary, the grandson of golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, didn't just have a knack for getting open against Pitt, he was wide open on every single one of his four catches.
Fisher figured he could exploit a weakness in Pitt's pass coverage by utilizing O'Leary, and it sounds like they'll be throwing more balls his direction in the near future. "I thought we could get the ball to him in key situations. (QB Jameis Winston) got through and found him because there were other options on the play," Fisher said. "(Nick) had the ability to work backside and do some things." - The Sports Xchange
09/04/13 - Florida State’s Nick O’Leary has been named the John Mackey Tight End of the Week. The former Dwyer standout earned the national honor after opening the 2013 season with three touchdown catches in the Seminoles’ 41-13 win over Pittsburgh on Monday night. He had four catches for 47 yards against the Panthers.
O’Leary had talked in the preseason about wanting to be more involved in the offense, and he got his wish Monday. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston found O’Leary three times for touchdowns, which tied his TD total from 2013. The junior was named to the preseason Mackey Award watch list this summer. The award, given annually to the nation’s top tight end, will be presented Dec. 12. - Bob Ferrante, The Palm Beach Post
