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 hype leading up to and including the first preseason 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%)

Preseason Week 1 Winner: CB Jimmy Moreland (88%)

The Candidates:

OLB Cassanova McKinzy

Cassanova has arrived, and his hype continues to build as he looks to secure a spot next to Ryan Anderson as a backup OLB. McKinzy has been getting noticed by Redskins coaches, and opposing offenses. This could be the year that the hype meets reality for the former Auburn LB.

ILB Josh Harvey-Clemons

Harvey-Clemons has been getting noticed for his improved size and play recently. He is playing more aggressively, and has a chance to make a big impact in a shaky ILB corps.

S Jeremy Reaves

Jeremy Reaves gets added to the list this week, and his name has been popping up all off/preseason. Redskins fans will always root for a safety to fix the neverending problem at the position.

WR Kelvin Harmon

The Kelvin Harmon love affair is in full bloom. Harmon put on a show last Thursday, playing aggressive and testing the leagues referees. Jay Gruden loved his play and doesn’t want Harmon to change his style. This will make the eventual Josh Doctson release much easier to deal with.

WR Robert Davis

ROSTER LOCK! If you catch the only two TDs in the preseason, from both of the Redskins 2019 starting QBs you have to be a lock right? Davis is still the best feel good story going for the Redskins this year, and he continues to make catching a football with your face look easy.

WR Cam Sims

Cam only had one target and 0 receptions last week. They obviously already know the starting talent/#1 WR they have and didn't want 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 had the most receptions on the team for the second week in a row. After his 2 receptions for 5 yards, is he ready to lead the team again tonight?

RB Craig Reynolds

Welcome to the hype! machine Craig Reynolds, the Kutztown Killer! Craig Reynolds continues to get the most carries week after week in the preseason. He also has the highest average on kick returns for the Redskins in the preseason. Can he overcome Jay Gruden’s love for the lackluster Samaje Perine?
