Trades were made by the Denver Broncos on Saturday morning when the 2017 NFL Draft resumed for rounds 4-7.
In the first trade, the Broncos sent running back Kapri Bibbs and a fifth-round pick (177th overall) to the San Francisco 49ers; in return, Denver received a fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft.
Bibbs was a star runner at Colorado State University before joining the Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2014. His hard work and ability has earned him a roster spot over the past few years, but never a regular role in the running back rotation. He goes to the 49ers hoping he can see some more playing time on the field with a team in complete rebuilding mode.
In 13 games played with the Broncos, Bibbs had 129 rushing yards on 29 attempts. Bibbs’ only touchdown with the Broncos came on this great 69 yard touchdown reception against the Raiders in 2016:
Minutes later, Denver traded out of the fourth round in a separate trade with the Cleveland Browns. They sent the 126th overall pick along with the 252nd overall pick to the Browns in return for two picks in the fifth round, 145th overall (which ended up being TE Jake Butt) and 175th overall.
