In the NFL, it seems that kicks are blocked most often by Safeties burning unblocked from the edge, rather than the tall guys in the middle. It does happen, but hardly worth drafting for.
I know that Red Bryant is badass at blocking kicks in the middle. I live in Seattle and they make a big deal of it out here.

(not saying it's worth drafting that specific skill-set; just saying it exists)
