    Strong Points: Athletic with better-than-adequate speed and good overall body control and flexibility. Willing blocker. Releases off the line and into routes quickly and cleanly. Good short pattern runner who is able to create separation coming out of cuts. Always catches the ball in his hands and has a fairly good receiving radius.

    Weak Points: Must get stronger -- saw his legs buckle a few times on film when run blocking. Only a one-year starter. Short arms for his height. Only one year of good production.

    The Way We See It: Warring has talent but is still raw. A former walk-on who wasn't awarded a football scholarship until 2017, he started only three games that season becoming a full-time starter last season. He is tall but needs to add a few pounds and get stronger, especially in the lower body. Though he is a willing blocker, Warring is more of a wall-off blocker than a powerful point-of-attack people mover. As a receiver, he was used mostly on shorter routes but showed an ability to get open. He has good hands, a relatively large receiving radius and the competitiveness to compete in traffic and gain yards after the catch. Overall, Warring is more of a "move" tight end, but he doesn't have the speed to be totally effective in that role in the NFL. He will need to get bigger and stronger to become a more effective blocker, giving him a chance to eventually start.
