— 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.

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.
