The 24-year-old third-round pick is coming off a breakout year in which he had 125 tackles, a sack, two interceptions, six pass deflections, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries en route to his first Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors.

Since he was drafted in 2018, Warner ranks seven in the NFL with 366 tackles and joins only Seattle’s Bobby Wagner with at least 250 solo tackles and more than 15 pass breakups in that time frame.
