We want to block 2 external email addresses from being able to send to 1 specific user in our domain. We want those 2 external users to be able to send to other users in our domain however.

You can use transport rule to either drop or redirect such email.

Worked like a charm, thank you. The part that I missed was creating the external contact before trying to build the rule.
