The Thrower makes any Ag 4 lineman a potential threat to catch the ball. Skill up the Blitzers and lineman (and Thrower) a little first so they can protect themselves and your AV 7 Catchers, who will skill up very quickly once they have some solid support on the rest of the team.
For teams created for a mid-long life, starting without a Thrower helps linos getting the much needed early skills. A Catcher helps get out of tricky situations early on and for the spp-farming throws.
Elves tend to be expensive and the money saved on a starting roster for re-rolls can prove to be valuable later. With a decent amount of re-rolls, lineman linos aren't only reliable players, they are also able to handle a rather wide amount of opponents thanks to their high agility. Disregarding any passers and catchers and instead relying on re-rolls allows to have a very flexible passing and hand off game that can involve any player on the team. Positioning is crucial but thanks to the ok movement of 6 and the good ability to dodge not too much of a problem. If possible the 1 Blitzer should be included because the extra money doesn't hurt much and 1 single blocker on a rookie teams tends to be extremely valuable in odds if used correctly.
Starting with a Thrower, 2 Catchers and both Blitzers means you start straight off with a team that plays the High Elf way, but only 2 RR leaves little room for mistakes or bad luck.
Instead of surviving and playing a running game with lots of linemen until the positionals are added later, having the catchers not only improves offense, but defense too, as opposition handling errors can be fully capitalized upon - lob the ball to a waiting catcher, and he's gone.
