The Seahawks took Brown with the 137th overall pick after sending Pick No. 129 to Tampa Bay for No. 137 as well as a sixth-round pick, No. 217 overall.
Brown, who is 5-foot-10, 185 pounds, was a second-team All-Big 12 selection as a senior, recording three interceptions and six pass breakups in 10 games. Brown was also a special teams standout for the Sooners, earning second-team All-Big 12 honors as a kick returner in 2018.
The move gives the Seahawks another player to throw into what should be a pretty open competition at cornerback after Shaquill Griffin and Quinton Dunbar both left in free agency. In addition to two returning players with starting experience, Tre Flowers and D.J. Reed, the Seahawks have also added two free agents who have been starters Ahkello Witherspoon and Pierre Desir, as well as re-signing Damarious Randall, who is moving back to cornerback, the position he played during his first three years in the league.

- Pick 56 (R2): WR D'Wayne Eskridge - Western Michigan

- Pick 217 (R6)
- Pick 250 (R7)
With the No. 137 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks selected Tre Brown, a cornerback out of Oklahoma.
