Damaris Johnson!

Now that the Eagles have broke camp in Lehigh and are headed back to Philly, its time to declare the race for the Na over. While Marvin McNutt had himself a nice camp, Bryce Brown turned some heads, Cliff Harris had people talking despite not actually doing anything (call that the DeAndre Brown award)... in the end, there's only one man standing.

As any longtime reader of the site knows, every year we hand out the coveted Na Brown award to the new player who came into camp as a relative unknown, but managed to ratchet his expectations up through the roof thanks to an impressive training camp. It is named after former Eagles WR Na Brown who had legendary camps, but never really did anything in the regular season.

Damaris Johnson, the undrafted rookie free agent out of Tulsa really fits the Na like a glove. He's an unheralded and unknown as you get, he's drawn more headlines in cap than a lot of starters, he's made plays in preseason (a 70 yard TD catch) and looks set to make the team as the #1 punt returner.

Previous Na winners include Lorenzo Booker, Hank Baskett & Riley Cooper. None have really broken through as regular starters or big time players in the league so far... can Johnson break the trend?
