Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about KHALEN SAUNDERS: Western Illinois, 6003 324 5.03. Four year starter from St. Louis, MO. Was named to the AP All- America team as well as first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference. Was third on the team in tackles and earned a Senior Bowl invitation. Jams up the inside running lanes when he plays square and stout at the point of attack. Can bull rush a high playing guard. A good athlete that dominated tackle to tackle on the FCS level. Plays with good energy and short area quickness. Plays low and with leverage to get under the blocker. Has a tendency to use a spin move that creates running lanes if he doesn’t make the play. Gets stalemated on the line when he stops moving his feet. Struggles to rush the passer. Upgrades current need backup. 2018 stats: 72 T, 13 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 1 PBU, 5 QBH, 1 FF. Edge speed:left 2.51, right 2.42. OSR:9/ 21. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 1/4, H-9 1/8, BP-27, 10-1.75).
