Why was a Jack Nicklaus progeny trending on Twitter (hint: great hands)?

February 20, 2015

Jack Nicklaus' grandson Nick O'Leary, a tight end from Florida State, apparently turned in an impressive performance at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Friday, resulting in his name trending on Twitter.

It is clear by this video that he was exceptional in the hands drill.

O'Leary, 22, was a consensus All-American and winner of the John Mackey Award as the best tight end in college football and is projected as a possible first-round draft choice.

O'Leary's mother Nan is Nicklaus' daughter. His father Bill was a tight end at Georgia.
