Scouting Report on Nick O'Leary

by Barry Every - 10/15/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeDivision I Player
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Ball SkillsDivision I Player
On the Hoof: He has almost no bad body weight and could easily house another 15 to 20 pounds on his frame.
Needs Improvement: At times he can make spectacular catches in traffic and, other times, he drops passes when wide open. He is a very intense competitor and sometimes loses his cool on the field.
Most Impressive: He runs precise routes and is really a mismatch for less athletic linebackers to cover. O’Leary is dangerous after the catch and can break tackles with his powerful running style.
Conclusion: He definitely has a chance to become an impact freshman, especially on kick/punt coverage. His intensity level and ability to get open either as a tight end, slot receiver or H-Back will make him a necessary weapon for any offensive coordinator.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
