We all evolved from a common ancestor if that's what you mean, but I'm don't think it was a direct evolution from rodent to primate.

Forest environments are not very conducive to making fossils, so the fossil record of primate evolution is very incomplete. There is a lot of room for speculation and theory, but only because there is so much left to learn.
