    Overview.
    Exciting and ascending, Warring is still a relative newcomer to the game, but he has the size, speed and athleticism to become a versatile, high-impact player on the pro level. He has the competitiveness to handle run-blocking duties and the talent to line up in the slot. While his production won't catch your eye, his tape does with quickness and ball skills that should make him a more productive target in the NFL than he was in college.

    LOVE Kahale Warring for the Texans.

    Was hoping for Fant in the first, Warring is an incredible "consolation" prize

    Booger McFarland just said former #SDSU TE Kahale Warring has potential to be a "matchup nightmare for defenses" in the NFL.

    Love the kid - nice athlete.... but exactly how many TE's does one team need? I'm fine with BPA and all that, but it just doesn't make sense to me, OK Griffen gone makes sense, but you drafted two last year and signed one in FA.

    Who have you already given up on?

    I'm conflicted a bit on this. I really wanted some kind of defensive back in the 3rd round, or perhaps a RB, NOT another TE. But this TE is a good pickup. So it's good and bad. For now, until proven otherwise, I'll go with the good.

    They took 2 tight ends last yr and signed Fells. Where is the foot speed outside or in the backfield? Are they just going to hope and pray Fuller comes back? More importantly, stay healthy. Again, another project.

    The @HoustonTexans just selected TE Kahale Warring and we've got full highlights of his 2018 season.#NFLDraft // #WeAreTexans pic.twitter.com/1hpNxUUb4F

    There isn't much out there on #SDSU TE Kahale Warring so I made a few cut-ups.

    Needs to continue his improvement as a blocker and receiver but he has the athleticism and frame to turn into a complete package TE. Shouldn't make it out of RD 3. pic.twitter.com/ecIoCGglYG

    #SDSU TE Kahale Warring Career Stats: 51 Rec, 637 Yards, 8 TD.

    HT: 6'5"
    WT: 251
    40: 4.67
    Vert: 36.5"
    Broad: 10'2"

    Here a few of his TDs from the past 2 years. At a run-heavy program like SDSU the stats are never going to be eye-popping. pic.twitter.com/euTRk6xmrk

    #SDSU TE Kahale Warring's combination of size and speed is a lot to handle for DBs.

    Huge catch radius and impressive ball skills considering he's only play football a few years. pic.twitter.com/J0nG5cWieb

    This kid is super athletic. While I wasn’t a fan of the TE pick here, I can see why they picked him. He does look like a more athletic Todd Heap/Tyler Eifert/Owen Daniels.

    based on two starts in 2018? Seems like OB still trying to find his Gronk---keep drafting an hope lightning hits. Warring is a physique and a player but little shows he is an athlete. Later in draft well maybe but here? SHeesh. He just trashed his 2018 TE picks. I can and have defended the reaches for Howard and Scharping but this is one I just don't get.

    I may be wrong and this is with no inside knowledge on this particular transaction, but I wonder if BOb and Gaine saw NE picking at 87 and thought this was their Gronk pick to make before Belichick.

    Just my initial thought.

    Comparison-

    Lance: Todd Heap
    John Harris: Travis Kelce

    Griffin gone, Fells a blocker, Akins moving from TE to H-Back and Thomas/Warring as starters in 2 TE sets. In the red zone it will be Thomas/Warring.

    I'm definitely okay with that.

    I think Griffin is gone. I like Thomas still but Atkins isn’t that great plus he’s old. Warring is the best blocker of the bunch. Having to defend warring and Thomas will be difficult for teams

    It's obvious TE is very important to this team and they will continue adding players until they are happy with what they have. This kid has Kittle/Kelce ceiling.
