Draft Scout Nick O''Leary News
04/03/14 - Florida State tight end Nick O'Leary will miss the rest of the spring due to injuries sustained from a recent motorcycle accident. Coach Jimbo Fisher says O'Leary injured his ankle and was "skinned from head to toe." O'Leary caught 33 passes for 557 yards and seven touchdowns during the championship run last season. He was also named All-ACC second team. This is not the first time O'Leary has been involved in a motorcycle accident. A Lexus pulled out in front of him last May and he struck the left front of the car and flipped over the hood. Fisher says, "He needs to be frustrated, it's not important if I'm frustrated." O'Leary is the grandson of golfer Jack Nicklaus. Senior tight end Kevin Haplea moves to first string. - AP Sports
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
