Late round picks aren't expected to be starters. They are expected to fill roles and be special teamers. Calling this draft a mini-mulligan doesn't make sense since all of your comparisons are early picks to late picks or late picks to late picks.
I believe I know where you're coming from with this statement, but I would have to disagree with this statement. Regardless of where a player is drafted, that player is expected to fully perform the responsibilities of a role/position. Every player has the same opportunity to demonstrate their abilities during training camps and the remainder of preseason, so every player has the opportunity to become a starter commensurate to their demonstrated abilities.
