Hey,

Was lucky enough to roll +St on a runner and +Ag on a blitzer for their first skill rolls.

Going forward I'm considering switching their roles on the team. Wrestle on the runner to build into a ball sacker and using the blitzer for ball carrier duties.

Any merit to this idea? Or should I just stick to the traditional development paths?

I wouldn't say it's entirely without merit, but I wouldn't advise it, especially if you aren't an experienced dwarf coach. MA 5 on a ball carrier is a big liability and until the Blitzer gets Sure Hands the runner will still be better at ball retrieval. You don't want to be using team rerolls on pickups as a dwarf.

Fortunately, those stats also make them both better at their default jobs! An ST 4 ball carrier makes the ball a lot safer, especially when escorted by a cage of Guards. Also gives him a big role on defense, which is nice.

An AG 4 Blitzer is much harder to mark and pin down, and has a better shot at securing the ball if he pops it free.

as usually, it very much depends. Generally I would stick to their traditional roles on offence...but if you need a 2 turn TD, it could be better to use the ag4 Blitzer as a thrower.
On defence you don't have that much control...of course it is often better to blitz with str4 and pick up with ag4

St 4 runners carrying the ball is great! He can still backup as a sweeper in defence by giving him Block and Tackle. If he ever gets a double or two, then Dodge and Sidesteps are a must. The Blitzer gets Guard next (Dodge on doubles). The +Ag makes him quite nice at getting the Guard exactly where you need it...

sounds good Hometown. However you do have another runner. Develop him with passing skills and have him toss it to the blitzer when he's in range. That way the little legs (5M) doesn't impede too badly.
