2019 NFL Draft: Washington Redskins’ top Day 2 targets
Looking for a rising player who could go earlier than most expect? Meet Kahale Warring.
Warring, a product of San Diego State, has impressed teams in the pre-draft process enough so that he has earned potential third-round buzz. He could go late in the frame, and the Redskins may consider adding the raw, 6-5 athlete.
When it was reported that the Redskins were hosting Warring on a visit, I offered the following thoughts on his skill set and potential fit with the team.

"Warring played in 17 games in the past two seasons for the Aztecs and notched 49 catches for 620 yards and six touchdowns. He was a decent receiving threat and has the size needed to make an impact at the next level. He will need to be a bit more refined as a route runner to gain separation and will have to prove that he can serve as a blocker. But still, he has some upside. Given that Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis are both starting to get older, it may be nice for the Redskins to add some young depth at tight end. Yes, they have Jeremy Sprinkle, but it may benefit them to add another prospect who can develop along with him. Warring could be gotten late in the draft, and if he pans out, he could get a chance to lock down a bigger role in 2020."
The Redskins have bigger needs than tight end in the third round, so that’s why Warring as at the bottom of this list, at the moment. He will garner consideration, but I would see the team targeting a prospect in the fifth round at that position.
