Five of the six players selected by Minnesota in the 2023 NFL draft have signed rookie contracts.

The Vikings on Wednesday inked No. 23 overall pick Jordan Addison. He joins third-round cornerback Mekhi Blackmon, fourth-round safety Jay Ward, as well as defensive lineman Jaquelin Roy and quarterback Jaren Hall, both fifth-round picks.

Only seventh-round running back DeWayne McBride, out of UAB, remains unsigned.

Addison, the 2021 Biletnikoff Award recipient at Pittsburgh, played his final college season at Southern California. He was the fourth wide receiver taken in the 2023 draft. In his last two college seasons, Addison recorded 159 receptions for 2,468 yards and 25 touchdowns.
