2019 NFL Draft: San Diego State TE Kahale Warring Selected By Houston Texans At #86
The Texans pick up a highly versatile former Aztec.
San Diego State’s dynamic tight end heads to the Lone Star State.
The Houston Texans have selected former San Diego State tight end Kahale Warring as the 86th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
After turning both of his receptions into touchdowns as a freshman, Warring became a regular contributor as a sophomore (18 receptions, 248 yards, 13.8 average, three touchdowns) and junior (31 receptions, 372 yards, 12.0 average, three touchdowns).
Warring is a talented player who secures the football and catches the ball away from his body. He has a pretty wide catch radius and has the athleticism to break away in the open field. He moves really well in space as a blocker, and his change of direction skills are impressive and quick. Warring always plays with power and urgency off the snap, which will be beneficial when paired with quarterback Deshaun Watson.
Warring is another tight end player that has the athletic profile of what teams are looking for at the next level, but he is late to the game of football and is still very much a work in progress as a prospect. As with a lot of the other guys in the middle rounds this year with potential, he likely benefits from a few years of learning before thrown into major action.
