On a play where the North (Khalen's team) got a turnover, they had two O-linemen trying to stop Saunders and they still were struggling to hold him back. He also got free and zoomed over and nearly recovered the fumble.
Some of the tweets I've seen are thinking that he may be playing himself into the second round in this game.

Ha...I pulled the Senior Bowl stream up on my computer to see how things are going and the first thing I see (it's halftime) is a slow motion shot of someone slapping a Raiders sticker onto a WIU helmet. I'm guessing Gruden is a fan of what he's seeing out of Saunders.
Here's that shot, courtesy of Barstool Sports:

Haven't watched this since he signed, but how did major schools pass on this freak athlete? I know he wasn't the height they like their DT's, but watching this again blew my mind. Literally laughing at some of the shit he was able to do on offense. Watch it all if you'd like, but start at 3:17 to see a ridiculous read and play on defense and then it gets into the offense!!!!!!!!

They need to show some of this stuff when he's drafted!!!!!!

Sure gonna miss watching him in a Leatherneck uniform next year. He's just an all around fun guy to watch.

Khalen went to same high school (Parkway Central HS in Chesterfield, MO) as 3-time Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer and Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti.
If Jimmy V was a programmer like me, he would have said it like this: while (!(succeed = try()));

Scott, you or Spotts should tweet this to Rich Eisen to use for the combine. I know they have teams of people pulling content and all these guys have freak high school tapes, but this really hammers home his natural athletic ability and could be overlooked if they're only pulling college film. Could say Khalen Saunders was the FCS Aaron Donald, but Jerome Bettis in High School.
