WRONG. F'ing Sasuke fans.
Being an Uchiha does not = being an elite shinobi. No clan is without unskilled shinobi. The Uchihas were considered formidable because as far as entire clans go, they were pretty strong, and some
(not all) members had the Sharingan, which was very useful. So to answer your question, it's because they weren't sure whether he'd even be elite. To an extent, they were right to doubt him.
