Demeco played every snap from game 1. Connor & Reed played a lot for 2nd rounders as well.
Eric Winston started 7 games as a rookie. Owen Daniels started 12
Wali Lundy was our starting running back week 1 of 2006.
Steve Slaton started 15 games as a rookie.
Glover Quin started 12 games & Brice McCain played an awful lot as a rookie
But other than that, I think you're right.
