Broncos make two Day-3 draft trades for picks in 2017, 2018

**

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. —** The Broncos have traded running back Kapri Bibbs and the 177th-overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to San Francisco in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Bibbs entered the NFL as an undrafted college free agent in 2014 out of Colorado State after a school-record season with 1,741 rushing yards.

He played on the Broncos' practice squad for most of the 2014 and 2015 seasons, and was active for just one week. In 2016, Bibbs saw an increased role after a season-ending injury to starting running back C.J. Anderson. Bibbs saw action in 12 games and recorded 129 rushing yards and 75 receiving yards before an ankle injury ended his year.

The Broncos are unlikely to received many compensatory picks in 2018, and this move grabs another early pick in what is expected to be a deep draft.

UPDATE: Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway and Co. made a second Day-3 deal Saturday, trading a fourth- and seventh-round pick to Cleveland for two fifth-round picks.

The Broncos' remaining picks in the 2017 NFL Draft are:

  • Round 5: 145th and 175th overall
  • Round 6: 203rd overall
  • Round 7: 238th and 253rd overall
