Overview:

Warner finished his career at BYU, where he played in 49 career games, had 264 tackles, 32.0 for loss, 6.5 sacks, 7 interceptions, 13 pass breakups, 3 forced fumbles, and 5 fumbles recovered. He has good size, he has good speed, and is a tackling machine. He was also a ball hawking linebacker, and good in coverage. He is a defensive play maker, and a difference maker on defense. He is a hard hitter, and a run stuffer. He is a relentless defender, and a tough nosed player. On the other hand, he is not known as a big sack guy. With that said, I see Warner being a day 3 pick.
