2024 NFL draft sixth and seventh rounds

Seattle choose safety Josh Proctor (Ohio State) in the sixth round

Proctor is a good tackler and solid against the run. His biggest issue is in coverage where he can get lost in zone coverage. Most teams no longer play man-to-man, and while the Seahawks have two cornerbacks in Devon Witherspoon and Riq Woolen who are probably better in man-to-man, I don't see a new coach changing to that scheme.

Seahawks also take linebacker Tatum Bethune (Florida State) in the sixth round

Bethune is a good athlete and has a high football IQ. He would be a good player to bring in on third down on obvious passing downs. But he lacks the height (he is 6'1") to be great in pass rush and to get his hands up to bat balls away. He would be terrific on special teams, however.

Seattle picks defensive tackle Jamree Kromah (James Madison) in the seventh round

Kromah was a standout on a surprisingly good James Madison team, but he needs to gain a lot of weight before the Seahawks would count on him to be productive along the defensive line. He is only 275 pounds and needs to get closer to 300. He is a decent enough athlete, though.

Seahawks choose tight end Isaac Rex (BYU) in seventh round

Rex is a very good athlete who needs to gain mass to play in the NFL. He was a high-jump champion in high school so he could definitely be a red-zone threat. He also was asked to block a lot at BYU so he should understand what he is doing in that capacity.
