Most guys get overpowered by double teams. It takes a strange freak of nature to battle two NFL-caliber guys and come out on top. If he's a great interior pass rusher with great closing speed, then he's the right pick for this organization.
I'm not going to disagree with you, but some players hold up better than others. Sometimes an interior lineman just needs to anchor a 3 foot area for an extra half second so the mike linebacker can make a play. A guy like the Raven's nose tackle can anchor a spot long enough to be effective. Perhaps they all get beat by double teams. Some get beat a little worse.
I don't expect Carroll will put Hill in that position. Carroll will put Hill in a position to succeed.
