SI.com: Nick O'Leary A 'Freshman 15'

SI.com's Andy Staples thinks that FSU tight end Nick O'Leary is one of the top 15 freshmen in the nation that will contribute and make an impact right away when the season starts next week.

Here's what Staples had to say about the Seminoles' young star:

"What will Nike do if O'Leary becomes a star? Never will O'Leary catch a touchdown pass and then tent his fingers to show a school logo on the palms of his gloves. O'Leary doesn't wear gloves. The naked hands and a playing style that would look ideal in a leather helmet with no facemask have earned O'Leary a nickname from his teammates and coaches: Throwback. O'Leary, the grandson of golfer Jack Nicklaus, is a matchup nightmare for defenses in the passing game, but he's also a nasty, physical player who doesn't mind blocking. With fellow freshman Timmy Jernigan also wreaking havoc at defensive tackle, FSU's class of 2011 could make a huge impact early."
