Day three of the NFL Draft kicked off with a pair of moves for the Denver Broncos, neither of which involved selecting a prospect.

First, Denver parted with its fifth-round pick (No. 177 overall) and running back Kapri Bibbs in exchange for a 2018 fourth-rounder from the San Francisco 49ers.

Bibbs — who set single season records for rushing yards (1,741), rushing touchdowns (31), total touchdowns (31), and points (186) in 2013 — signed with the Broncos in 2014 as a college free agent.

After spending much of his rookie season on the practice squad, Bibbs played one game in 2015 and 12 games in 2016, compiling 129 rushing yards and 75 receiving yards, along with one receiving touchdown.

The Broncos then reportedly shipped its fourth-round pick (No. 126) and a compensatory seventh-round pick (No. 252) to the Cleveland Browns for the first and last picks of the fifth-round (Nos. 145 and 175).
