Player Overview

Grandson of golf legend Jack Nicklaus and a 2013 All-ACC second-team honoree, O'Leary showed was a Mackey Award finalist with 33 receptions and seven touchdowns as a junior and then won the award in 2014 with 48 receptions for 618 yards and six scores.

His college career ended with a relative thud -- O'Leary injured his hamstring in pregame warmups for the Rose Bowl Game against Oregon - buthe comes with plenty of fanfare. O'Leary does all the little things well and has terrific hands. But he's more of a complementary threat than a future superstar. Because of the limited ceiling, it could be the fourth round before O'Leary is drafted.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Great hands. Old school with no gloves. Excellent hand-eye coordination and focus. Consistently catches the ball away from his frame. No hesitation in traffic, go-getter with guts. Good initial quickness off the ball. Consistent and reliable route-runner. Recognizes holes in zone coverage. Settles quickly, presents large target. Good awareness and football instincts.

WEAKNESSES: Not the massive target or seam threat en vogue in today's NFL. Rolls out of his breaks. Not explosive. Average straight-line speed who won't scare defenders. Limited elusiveness. Struggles to make opponents miss in the open field. One-gear runner. Light-legged, willing blocker. Limited strength as an inline blocker.
