The Associated Press

Florida State tight end Nick O'Leary and center Austin Barron are the latest Seminoles to be named to college football preseason awards watch lists.

O'Leary is expected to be in the running as the top tight end in the nation after he was named to the John Mackey Award watch list Tuesday. He had 33 catches for 557 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013 and was a finalist for the award.

Barron has the opportunity to bring a second consecutive Rimington Trophy to Florida State after Bryan Stork was named the top center in the country in 2013.

Quarterback Jameis Winston, receiver Rashad Greene, running back Karlos Williams, cornerback P.J. Williams, defensive end Mario Edwards, Jr. and receiver and kick returner Kermit Whitfield were all named to preseason lists Monday.
