Kahale Warring is one of five players remaining from the 2019 draft class for the Houston Texans. But unlike his draftmates in Tytus Howard, Lonnie Johnson Jr, Max Scharping and Charles Omenihu, Warring is still trying to find his niche on the Texans despite being selected with the 86th pick in the third round.

Can Warring finally crack the tight end rotation as he enters his third year in the league? A preview of Warring ahead of the 2021 NFL season.

Warring could be the biggest enigma the Texans have on their roster heading into the new year. He missed his entire rookie season in 2019 due to an undisclosed injury, but a productive collegiate career at San Diego State proved Warring has the potential to develop into something special in the NFL if given the opportunity. The 24-year-old tight end from California has only played in seven games in his first two seasons while appearing in a total of 111 snaps — most coming on special teams. With a crowded tight end core made up of seven players, the 2021 season could result in Warring still watching his peers from the sideline of NRG Stadium. With Nick Caserio becoming Warring's third general manager in three years, there is a strong chance the San Diego State prodigy may not be a part of the Texans' roster come Week 1 of the regular season. In 19 games with the Aztecs, Warring recorded 637 yards (12.5 avg) on 51 receptions and eight touchdowns.
