Vikings select UAB RB DeWayne McBride at No. 222 overall in seventh round of 2023 draft

The Minnesota Vikings have made their final selection of the 2023 NFL draft. With pick No. 222 of the NFL draft, the Vikings select UAB running back DeWayne McBride.

The one major concern with McBride is that he’s a complete unknown in the receiving game
