The Seattle Seahawks traded up in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL draft to select tackle Stone Forsythe out of Florida with the No. 208 overall pick.

Seattle traded its sixth-rounder (No. 217) and its seventh-round pick (No. 250) to the Bears to move up for their new tackle.

The offensive line is one of the most glaring needs for the Seahawks heading into the season and hopefully Forsythe will be able to contribute sooner than later.

The left tackle is currently listed at 6-foot-8, 329 pounds and started the last two seasons.

After the trade, the Seahawks have no more picks in this year’s draft but could jump back in with another deal at some point.
