He's not Chad Johnson, Julio Jones, AJ, Larry Fitzgerald, etc... This draft is very deep at WR but lacks elite level talent, the same can be said for the draft as a whole, deep/good at many positions but not much elite level talent.
All the dudes you listed were taken #2 or 3 overall except Julio. Not sure why you are comparing Blackmon to them when he wouldn't be taken until #6 in my scenario.
