They all did.

I agree it's a Cowher thing. But he did start Heath Miller in 2005, Miller's rookie year.

But honestly, it's not like we've needed rookies to start much in the recent past.

And the last offensive linemen to be named a starter (not step in due to injury) was Allan Faneca back in 1998.

If we would have drafted Loadholdt in the second round, I think he would be the starter.
