Denver Broncos Trade RB Kapri Bibbs to San Francisco 49ers

Kapri Bibbs and a fifth-rounder head to San Francisco in exchange for a 2018 fourth-round pick.

The Denver Broncos have successfully executed their first trade of the 2017 NFL Draft, sending running back Kapri Bibbs and a fifth-round pick to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a fourth rounder.

Per Mike Klis of 9News, the Broncos fifth-round pick was the 177th pick this year, and the fourth-round pick they received is a 2018 selection.

Especially if you think there will be a large discrepancy between where the Broncos and 49ers pick a year from now, this could end up being a good value trade for the Broncos.

In Bibbs, Kyle Shanahan gets a tough scat back that really came on late in the year for the Broncos before an ankle injury prematurely ended a promising first season on the active roster.

For the Broncos, this gives them a potentially open spot on their roster now for a third running back, if Juwan Thompson isn't able to keep it.

Last night, they were rumored to be targeting Joe Mixon before the Cincinnati Bengals selected the Oklahoma back, but there are still a number of quality runners still on the board on the third day of the draft like Boise State's Jeremy McNichols and Wyoming's Brian Hill.

Good luck to Kapri Bibbs. The prevailing opinion is that Bibbs wasn't a great fit in the Mike McCoy offense, but should get plenty of opportunities with Shanahan and the Niners, a system famous for getting plenty of production out of its running backs.

We'll miss him and his music videos.
