I think generally it is a false endeavor to get into pulling pieces off teams. Odds are without Wilson last year the Seahawks don't win and without the D the Seahawks don't win. They are not mutually exclusive and lack a connection.
On that specific game I think you have selective memory. Wilson starting tearing us a new a-hole on the ground in the 2nd half - 10 att. 77 yds. He played a big part in their victory as did the defense.

Would the Browns give up 4? Nope. 26? Maybe... 35? Much more likely.
Would Oakland give up 5? Don't think so. 37? Sure.
Texans 2-1 would be the most I think they would pay for it.
Well put me down as thinking y'all in the Wilson is mediocre camp are dramatically underselling him. And I think your conjecture is totally wrong. There may be some teams who view Wilson as you do but I think the odds they all do and none would trade a top 10 pick for him are zilch. I think there is a 75% chance the Texans would trade 1.1 for him happily.
Wilson by the way has 8 4th quarter comebacks and 10 game winning drives in the past two seasons. He is not just riding a D.
