[MAKING  A LIST] Led by New York central defender Tim Ream, 11 rookies have already played at least 1,000 minutes this season in MLS and 10 more have played 500 or more minutes.

What is different about the Class of 2010 is the number of contributors who didn't come out of Round 1 of the SuperDraft.

The 21 players with 500-plus minutes came out of the following rounds: eight in Round 1, three in Round 2, four in Round 3, four in Round 4 and two home-grown players.
