On film Warner is a an above average inside linebacker who displays elite play recognition and capable sideline to sideline athleticism. As most high school linebackers do, he needs to get a bit better at shedding blocks and not allowing blockers into his body. He certainly has the frame to get quite good at this, standing at 6-4 225.
