Wider aprons attached with mortise and tenon would help a lot. The long aprons are too skinny for a 6 foot table, IMHO, and pocket screws are very low on the scale of best ways to attach them to prevent racking. A well done M&T joint would be best, but loose tenon or even dowels would be much stronger and better than pocket screws.
