Their overall point was in the NFL, a guy can become a better blocker with training and time, but they can't become more athletic. So get someone that is more athletic and force them to learn to block (of course that might of been easier to do before the latest CBA)
Honestly, I don't think any of the guys that you listed are "perfectly serviceable staying in-line" for the NFL level.
I also think Hurst blocking is better than Andrews blocking. Though neither is ideal for in line NFL blocking, but Hurst might be a good H-back.
And while I agree Hurst is an athletic freak, his routes are no where nearly as polished as Geiscki and Andrew, who I see as tall WRs like Graham.
