Minicamp and OTAs are completed for the Denver Broncos without as much as a problem. The whole team was present and the coaches were able to see how each player has progressed and done during the offseason. While the team had many players who impressed, there are a few who did the complete opposite.

With that in mind, here are five Broncos players who were complete duds in minicamp.

Chris Clark only faltered because he did not secure the top right tackle position during minicamp. In fact, he ended the early summer days battling with veteran Winston Justice and third-round draft pick Michael Schofield for the top spot. In order for Clark to get the starting job, he is going to have to improve in training camp.

In all fairness, Cody Latimer is still recovering from a foot injury that will sideline him for at least one more month. He also must focus on the rookie objectives that are presented by the league, so having all of that is reason enough for his struggles. But he should be okay and ready to climb the depth chart in training camp.

When you have T.J Ward come onto the team via free agency and Quinton Carter coming back from knee surgery, it is not going to look good on the depth chart. Duke Ihenacho also has to recover from a nagging ankle injury and just lost confidence last year. It appears due to last season, he is not a favorite for the spot. There's a good chance he may not see the field much this year.

The road to recovery for Kevin Vickerson is a slow one as he is still recovering from the hip injury that sidelined him during the 2013 season. With Sylvester Williams developing into a solid player as well as most of the key players healthy already, there could be a chance that Vickerson's playing time will be limited at best.

2013 was just a horrendous year for the former No. 1 player on the depth chart. Now he is in trouble as far as making the final roster. With Montee Ball the lead back, C.J. Anderson as the likely backup and college free agents like Brennan Clay and Kapri Bibbs, this will become a make-or-break summer for Hillman or he might find himself out of the job.
