And OL can be well-drilled in his assignments and can be offered some assistance from a tight end, running back, etc., and can have plays called that ameliorate his weaknesses.
For both pass rushers and space eaters, you've either got it physically or you don't. You can "coach 'em up", but it still comes down to raw talent more than at OL. That's why you "draft" them first.
