SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers acquired running back Kapri Bibbs from the Denver Broncos in general manager John Lynch’s fifth trade of the draft.
The 49ers also picked up Denver’s fifth-round selection, No. 177 overall, in exchange for the 49ers’ fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft.
Bibbs, who was not selected in the 2014 draft, carried 29 times for 129 yards last season. He caught two passes for 75 yards, including a 69-yard touchdown catch-and-run against the Raiders.
Lynch worked out the trade for Bibbs (5-11, 203) with Denver general manager John Elway. Adam Peters, the 49ers’ vice president of player personnel, previously served as Denver’s director of college scouting.
Bibbs joins a 49ers running back group that consists of Carlos Hyde, Tim Hightower, DuJuan Harris, Mike Davis and Raheem Mostert.
