2. Kahale Warring
If Kahale Warring can get some in-game action on Thursday night it should be worth watching because last season the tight end spot left many wanting for more from the players who played that position.
Warring was drafted in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft out of San Diego State University. The 22-year old will not only be making his debut in the NFL, but he’s working to gain a roster spot because there are really no guaranteed spots on the roster of head coach Bill O’Brien.
This week, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle wrote the following on Warring and how his presence has been felt in training camp this week:
"“Warring (6-5, 256) did a solid job of blocking, taking on defenders and standing them up in the running and passing games. He also ran hard on every route, even when the ball was thrown to the other side of the field.”"
That is the type of play the Texans need at tight end, and if Warring keeps up that style of play he will challenge for not just playing time in the preseason, but also in the regular season.
The Texans could have a very nice duo of tight ends in Warring and one of the Jordans in either Jordan Thomas or Jordan Akins, but if Warring can replicate his training camp accolades in the preseason games, take note of his name and number for the regular season.
