5E starter set character skill proficiencies - too many?

I'm sure this has been asked but I can't find it - sorry! The starter set characters seem to have too many skill proficiencies. The wizard, for example, has 5 skill proficiencies but wizards only get 2 from their class and 1 from being an elf. What am I missing?

Everyone also gets 2 skills from Backgrounds

You can (generally do) also get proficiencies from your Background.
