The Seahawks took their time to pick Wilson as they waited until the third round using the 75th pick to acquire him, and since then he has been a revelation and the key component in their run to Super Bowl XLVIII.
"It's real common for people to say, 'Hey, we loved that guy too,'" Carroll told reporters
"John Schneider led the charge on this thing. John had it pegged perfectly where it happened for us. He had been sweating it out in the second round."
Wilson threw for 26 touchdowns to just nine interceptions in the 2013 regular season.
