The CB actually was in a better position than Hopkins.
Again, what do you think the chances are against a starting CB?
To my understanding, when the CB is ahead of the receiver, the ball is supposed to be thrown short, not over the top.
That's one of those no read plays. If it's one on one, Tj tosses it up. His mind is made up before the ball is snapped, doesn't matter where the CB is. He has to trust that Hopkins is going to be there.
