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 entire offseason leading up to Thursday’s game against the Browns. 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?

The Candidates:

CB Jimmy Moreland

Jimmy "The People's Corner" Moreland has been an absolute hype machine since getting drafted. He has the attitude you want to root for in a late round pick from a smaller school. His hype really took off during OTAs when he was an INT machine. He has even received one of the highest forms of Hype!, he is this year’s Trey Quinn! He continues to be a fan and media favorite and is making it hard to ignore his future on the Redskins.

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!

Remember this from two years ago?

TE Donald Parham

We should just go ahead and cut Vernon Davis’ overpriced ass right now, we got Donald Parham! Welcome to the offseason hype machine; it's working its magic with the latest big tight end who literally catches everything.

WR Kelvin Harmon

There were many a fanboard/blog/facebook group/reddit page that were wondering why the hell Kelvin Harmon was dropping as far as he did in the draft, and when the hell their team was going to end his slide. The Redskins got that steal, and he has carried that hype throughout the offseason. The Redskins were not good at WR last year, so if you have two hands and can catch a ball you might show up on this list.

WR Robert Davis

Davis has been a pleasant surprise. The Redskins own website made it sound like he was not going to be ready for training camp after a bad leg injury (think Teddy Bridgewater bad). But there he was trotting out on the field, looking more jacked than ever with the other measurables that got everyone hyped in the first place.

WR Cam Sims

Is Cam Sims the Redskins #1 receiver? Listen to some of that sweet, sweet hype and you will hear some people stating this as a fact. Sims looked good in preseason last year but was cut down early. He’s out here looking like a stud in training camp again, and ready to dominate some 3rd string CBs in preseason. People really want someone to replace Josh Doctson.

WR Steven Sims Jr.

Are we allowed to have two Sims getting hype in camp at the same time? The Redskins had Simmie Cobbs last offseason, so I guess we will allow it again this year. Sims Jr. is having a good camp and catching everything that comes his way. He is going to be an absolute monster in the 4th quarter of the 4th preseason game.

WR Trey Quinn

Trey Quinn has the slot WR position locked up already, and could honestly lock down any other spot he wanted. Trey makes his solo appearance on the 2019 Mason/Brennan Preseason Hype! Awards this week before he is inducted into the Redskins Preseason Ring of Fame on 8/11/19.
