Training camp is all about shedding light on standout performers. While lowlights occasionally make their way to social media, the first three weeks of Dallas Cowboys training camp have oozed positivity with reporters waxing poetic about the team's biggest bright spots in Oxnard.

As always, though, some players have struggled to generate buzz at camp.

It's not always a bad thing when fans haven't heard about a player, but there's a difference between flying under the radar and failing to make an impact.

Unfortunately, these three Cowboys have been concerningly quiet at camp and thereby fall under the latter category.

3. Chuma Edoga

Edoga hasn't exactly been quiet at camp.

With the Cowboys managing Tyron Smith's reps -- and focused on playing Tyler Smith at left guard -- Edoga has gotten more work than expected at left tackle. Unfortunately, he's been overmatched trying to contend with Dallas' speed off the speed, particularly against Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence.

While there's no shame in losing out to two of the better pass rushers in the league, Edoga has been utterly noncompetitive on several snaps. In fact, it was his blown assignment that gave Parsons a free run at Dak Prescott when the QB suffered an awkward fall following a low hit.

While Parsons was more at fault than Edoga, the 26-year-old lineman didn't even get a hand on Parsons. Ultimately, Edoga has enough experience at left tackle in his career to at least be serviceable in practice.

He won't line up against Parsons and Lawrence on every snap during preseason and the regular season, but he needs to stack up better reps and a strong preseason if he's to be trusted as the Cowboys' swing tackle.
