This is how I see the 2nd line C battle being fought out.
Let's say Ebbett's performing at a 6 and Schroeder's performing at a 5 through camp. With Ebbett, you've got a 30 year old journeyman. A 6 is the best you can hope for him to accomplish. If the competition is close, I say you absolutely give it to Schroeder, because even if he's competing just a notch below, his potential to step up and surpass that is much higher than Ebbett. Schroeder could potentially reach a 7 or an 8, while Ebbett will always max out at 6.
I just don't see a reason to give Ebbett the job over Schroeder unless the latter completely bombs his camp.
