What Scouts Are Saying:

Undersized but reliable, Saunders projects to be a potential difference maker from the slot with his ability after the catch and explosive speed to get behind secondaries. Saunders also adds a weapon to special teams as a return specialist. He is quicker and more agile than most, making him a tough guy to get your hands on. Once in the open field, he can run away from guys. - Dave Syvertsen,
