Looking at the cap numbers, here are some players I expect us to find replacements for in this years draft.

McQuiston -cap figure 2.5 million
Mike Rob - cap figure 2.5 million
Maragos - cap figure 1.3 million.

Every penny counts when we are trying to re-sign our core players.
Thoughts?

I think Mike Rob will stay. He has a very good relationship with Marshawn and is a leader on the offense.

Mike Rob is a Special teams Captain aswell as a leader in the locker room . No way he leaves . McQuiston is very reliable and as far as Maragos goes its definetly possible

The thing is, "pure" fullbacks like M-Rob are kind of a rarity in today's game. Might be hard to find a rookie to come in and take his job. Plus, mny teams don't even use a FB, so he might not have a lot of options in FA. I suspect he'll be re-upped in the coming year to a modest contract. OTOH, Harvin could take over many of Rob's offensive duties in swing and flat passes and outlets, so the team dynamic is a bit fluid right now.

I doubt if any of those guys is going anywhere this year, maybe next.

McQ can play every position on the line. MikeRob is untouchable this year. Lynch loves him. Maragos... not sure.

Mike Rob isn't going anywhere. No way they entrust a rookie to be the primary lead blocker for Lynch, especially given the complexities of the team's blocking schemes. Plus, the dude is the captain and still produces.

Not only is Mike Rob an above average FB and great STer, his impact in the locker room is too valuable to let go.

maybe we draft a brute of a running back to go on the practice squad and maybe 1 day supplant M-Rob, but no way is he a casualty, he's too important as a lead blocker for Marshawn

Less than zero percent chance that Michael Robinson isn't on the team in 2013, for all the aforementioned reasons and then some. McQuistan is in no jeopardy either. He's the Swiss Army knife of our OL, and frankly he's one of the five best O-linemen right now. If the season kicked off tomorrow, he'd be starting at one of the OL positions somewhere. A better bet would be Breno Giacomini, who is due an unguaranteed $3.5M in 2013. If the Hawks felt like they were to have gotten their long-term RT solution in this draft (such as a Terron Armstead or a Brennan Williams), that could make Breno expendable by moving McQuistan to RT for the 2013 season, upgrading the position by doing so, and allowing the new guy to apprentice for a year. I don't expect that to happen, but its certainly plausible. Maragos isn't guaranteed a spot, but any new guy would have to be once heck of a ST's guy to take his roster spot. I fully expect the Hawks to draft at least one CB in this draft, and that could precipitate the move of Byron Maxwell (another pure ST's guy who lacks legitimate NFL CB skills) to safety to compete with Maragos for a roster spot. Others I could potentially see fighting for their spot depending on how the draft goes include Anthony McCoy, John Moffitt, Clinton McDonald and Walter Thurmond.

M-Rob isn't going anywhere. Can't see McQuistan leaving either.

Maragos - yeah I suppose thats possible.

I posted it a few months ago, I could see the team drafting Brad Wing in the 7th round and having him compete with Ryan in TC/Preseason. Is it likely Ryan is cut? Doubtful.. but you never know.

Agreed! Mike Rob is essential to this team not only for his play on the field, but also to keep us fans entertained via The Real Rob Report.

Mike Rob should get a lifetime deal just for the RRR.

I could see Margaros going, it's a deep draft at safety but someone's going to have to beat him out.

Don't see Maragos being let go either. I doubt they can find another safety in the draft that could adequately provide 1/10th of what ET does and Maragos provides about 3/10th of that.

Yeah, I could definitely see that. But unless they strike gold we'd have to carry 3 FS's so the new rookie could learn the role...it's a critical one to say the least.

McQuistan earned his money, but I could see him being a target. Chris Maragos is making $1.3 million? Yeah, he's a pretty obvious target, IMO.

Oh yeah? Who's going to play free safety in the situation that Earl Thomas is injured? A rookie is going to be put into the defense which has Sherman and Browner jamming and Kam on the line watching read-options, TEs, and runs?

If Earl Thomas is injured, it won't matter who is back there.. there is going to be a huge drop off in talent.

Yeah. I've always just been grateful for Maragos and the fact that he has the knowledge and speed to make it so we don't have to change our defense too much if ET is injured, he can be plugged into the same role. I just don't see any rookie being able to step into that role, but I could be wrong.

I don't think Michael Robinson is going anywhere, but I'd love to see us bring in Zach Line out of SMU to groom behind Michael Robinson and that could make Robinson expendable in a couple of years. Of course... By then, we'll have won a Super Bowl and Michael Robinson would retire as a Seahawk, so no harm - no foul.

Denard Robinson seems like a great player to save cap space with. he could be the #3RB ont eh roster but fill in as the
#3QB
#5/6 WR
#1/2 KR & PR

Two positions I'm sure they will draft are Linebacker and Running Back/Full back. First is to replace Leroy Hill and I guess there might be more than one linebackers drafted to compete for the spot. Second is whether they feel they need to have competition for ageing Mike Rob or if they feel they need a punt returner/third RB. A scat back will surely not compete with Mike Rob though.

I hope Mike Rob stays for this year but as always, there will be a surprise cut that we are not expecting...

I agree Mike Rob could be in trouble, at the very least they'll draft his replacement and use this as the transition year. That likely will happen at WR as well. I don't think Tate AND Rice go as you don't want too much change at that position for the QB's sake, but I suspect one or the other.

Maragos is basically just a special teams player. I doubt he could stand in Thomas' shadow. All he does as ET insurance is be a guy with 4.4 speed. Obviously, you wouldn't kick Maragos to the curb for some 4.6 guy. If it's Maragos vs. some other 4.4 guy that looks decent, it's not like experience is going to factor much. Maragos hardly has any.

Robinson isn't going anywhere, catches passes out of the backfield, blocks for our RB's, special teams, you all forget what happened to our running game when Mack Strong retired and before Robinson was picked up and went through his learning curve. Real Fullbacks are getting more and more rare. A team that uses them frequently and one that can catch pases as well as be a standout leader and a special teams captain isn't waiting in the unemployment line to be tagged and inserted. So many underestimate the value till they are gone.

I would say if anyone leaves its because competition dictates it. Kam was the only "core" guy that I can think of that was eligible to be resigned.

The thing I find interesting is Mike Robs cap hit and what his contribution is. That guy is under paid.

The Seahawks are going for a SB this year. You don't cut a player like Robinson when you are going for it like they are. His leadership and blocking skills are too vital to entrust to a rookie.

Mike Rob is our 'secret agent' 3rd string QB on gamedays... IMO He stays even if Seattle is hit by a big earthquake!!!

McQuistan and Maragos both are stop gaps who have made good. Still, both are also overdue an upgrade.

McCoy and McGrath seem to be the most replacable in this draft.

Not M-Rob, he's a leader and is worth every penny.

McQuisten could be if we get an OT in the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th.

Maragos could be if we draft another saftey or CB he will liekly be battling Maxwell, and a rookie CB/S for 1 roster spot.

What about Clemons? is he really safe with his giant salary?

With Clemons it all depends on how his injury heals. He could be placed in IR or even cut if its bad enough.. Hopefully he does not miss too many games. Despite the recent DE upgrades, he still is the best LEO in the team. He has been mad consistent!
