The Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Award has been given out unofficially by the fans for years to each preseason's most hyped players, but now we've made it official, and will bring it to a vote.

This week's vote will cover the hyp leading up to and including last Thursday’s game against the Browns and beyond. Place your vote for who you feel has been the most hyped player up to this point, whether the hype is deserved or not.

The Rules:

1. Player must have been drafted late or signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent. Players that have only been on other teams practice squads that are signed by the team are also eligible.

2. A player that has been on the team for several years is still eligible if most of that time has been spent on the practice squad, inactive, or with very limited productivity/time

How have past Mason/Brennan winners done in pro football after receiving this glorious award?

Offseason Mason/Brennan Winner: CB Jimmy Moreland (70%)

The Candidates:

CB Jimmy Moreland

Jimmy "The People's Corner" Moreland has been an absolute hype machine since getting drafted. That hype went to new levels after his performance last Thursday against the Browns. He was everywhere, and stopping Browns drives left and right. His greatness has allowed the Redskins to move on from Josh Norman, there's a new #1 CB in town!

OLB Cassanova McKinzy

There were some small hype waves for Cassanova heading into Week 1, but he just missed the cut. He's here now, and he reminded people of the promise he showed in limited time last year. "We haven't had an OLB who could bend like that since..."

ILB Josh Harvey-Clemons

Harvey-Clemons has been on this ballot for the last two seasons, and he’s not going anywhere...yet. We were ready to drop him until the amazing news came out that he gained weight this year (240 lbs!). This...changes...everything!

WR Kelvin Harmon

The Kelvin Harmon love affair continues on Hogs Haven. I have read multiple times in the last week that we can absolutely not afford to cut Harmon, and try to get him on the practice squad. This receiver who fell to the 6th round and has 2 preseason receptions on his resume needs to make the team.

WR Robert Davis

Davis has been a pleasant surprise this offseason. I don't know anyone that expected him back for the preseason, and there he was catching the Redskins first( and only) TD of the night. It was a broken play, and he tried to catch it with his face, but it was a 46 yard TD from Redskins starting QB Case Keenum.

WR Cam Sims

Cam only had two targets and 1 reception last week. They obviously already know the starting talent/#1 WR they have and didn't wsnt to overuse him in the preseason. Cam is a big factor in the the plan for the replace Josh Doctson crowd.

WR Darvin Kidsy Jr.

Kidsy was Dwayne Haskins favorite target, and he racked up the most yards in the preseason opener. Those two facts guarantee a spot on this list every week.
