My wish would be for Neal but I think Burnett is most likely. IMHO improvement on both lines are our most crtical needs regardless where it comes from.

Evan Dietrich-Smith - low tender leaves low expectations
Sam Shields - has previously broken out
Mike Neal - if he remains unbroken, he could be the guy. Clay certainly benefited from having Mike Neal in the lineup.
C.J. Wilson - Really good run stuffers who don't offer much against the pass don't break out.
Robert Francois - It appears that the coaches want an all out battle for playing time inside. Could Francois be that guy?
Frank Zombo - Can't stay healthy, the only break out should be a breaking out of his walking papers.
Tim Masthay - he's as studley as punters get.
James Starks - (see Zombo, Frank - can't make the club in the tub)
Morgan Burnett - he still seems to see things late, take false steps, but if we could put him at SS, he could be solid. Break out? I'm not sold the way LeRoy Butler is.
Bryan Bulaga - top shelf RT he also has previously broken out
Marshall Newhouse - Marshall, Marshall, Marshall! I could go on all day about him. He's closer than many think, but oh so far away. If the guy could only find his inner nasty. I believe that if Marshall played with heavier hands, he would make a huge jump. I sometimes wonder if the guy wouldn't be better served being moved indside or to RT (side note: Bulaga at LT is an awful idea in my book). The reason I would like to see Marshall moved would be to find his inner nasty. Short version: he could make a huge jump, but I'm not expecting it.
Andrew Quarless - the biggest question is obviously that knee. I think the guy could be a very solid all-around TE.

I have to go with Mike Neal as the most likely, with Francois as a dark horse. I could see Burnett breaking out, but only if we find a free safety to play single-high alignments and let Burnett be who he really is.

Since nothing is going to happen at the position this season, I am hoping Newhouse has a breakout year. Could use that to protect the back of what is soon to be the highest paid, best quarterback in the league.

Newhouse is what he is imo. We've got two guys behind him who might break out, but they both remain to be seen.

My pick is Mike Neal, just because I think he's going to do it. He looks ready to make the leap. Performed pretty well last season. 2013 will have no distractions for him going in, which should help.

Let's take an acorn. What is that acorn? Well it may be just a nut. But it also might be gigantic oak tree that hasn't unfolded yet.

Newhouse is what he is.

Sam Shields? Morgan Burnett? Mike Neal? They might all have some unfolding to do yet.

My official pick for the break out player of the year is... JOHNNY JOLLY! He's not from that same draft year though.

hahaha I could say it takes one to know one - nut that is, but I will restrain myself. I hadn't thought about Jolly, and he isn't a 2010 guy like the thread says, but I tend to agree with you. I have a good feeling about him too - as the Brits say, "Jolly Good" hahaha.

I’ve always liked Morgan Burnett. He just needs to show a little more effort in tackling Adrian Peterson. I can't get over some of the bad angles he took and hesitation he showed. Regardless, I do expect him to solidify himself as one of the top NFC safeties next season.

Sam Shields just needs to build off a solid season last year. And stay healthy.

Mike Neal is interesting. He played well last year. Again, he just needs to stay healthy, but I'm hoping he can develop into a nice sub-package rusher.

I also think Bryan Bulaga is underrated. He’s not apart of the problem on the o-line. He’s part of the solution. He’s had one awful half in his last 21 games. It just happened on national televisions. Takeaway that half and he’s been consistent since 2011.
