Hakeem Nicks has failed to meet expectations through the early portion of Indianapolis Colts training camp.

NFL teams expect their players to bring their A-games when they report to their respective training camps in July. For some players, such as Indianapolis Colts free-agent addition Hakeem Nicks, that has not been the case.

Offseason analyses of players typically come in a glass half full, as every team and each fanbase expects their players to be as good as they can possibly be. Training camp, however, brings a different reality, as many players quickly fall behind expectations and cause concern for their franchises.

Except in the cases of season-ending injuries, it’s too early to write off any NFL player from performing well in 2014. With four preseason games ahead for every team, there’s still plenty of time for rookies and veterans alike to develop and improve.

That said, the following eight players need to elevate their levels of play as soon as possible. While all of these players came into training camp expected to play significant roles, each of them is at risk of being shuffled out of the lineup thanks to early struggles this summer.
