That J5 doesn't push the ball down field/doesn't throw down field well. He's second in the conference in yards per attempt. He gets the ball down field just fine.
Likens was having Yellen throw down field because it was 1) an easy read and 2) a generally low risk throw. All Yellen was looking for was the DB playing press man on Aiyuk or Darby. He'd then throw a go route. USC baited him into an INT because of that tendency. It wasn't because Yellen is more skilled at a deep ball than J5.
