Potentially FIVE NFL ND Rookie Starters

I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the following players are in the starting line-up for their respective teams in a couple of weeks.   

When was the last time Notre Dame had five ROOKIE STARTERS in the NFL?
  • Zack Martin -- given, will start at right guard for Cowboys
  • Troy Niklas -- could start for the Cardinals at tight end
  • Stephon Tuitt -- could start at the defensive end position for the Steelers
  • Chris Watt -- could start at the right guard position for the Chargers
  • Prince Shembo -- could start at middle linebacker for the Falcons

For that matter -- when was the last time any college team had that many rookie starters?
