Report: Broncos believe Colin Kaepernick is only worth fourth round pick
The Denver Broncos reportedly think Colin Kaepernick is worth only a fourth round pick in a trade.
According to NFL Media’s Mike Silver, the Broncos aren’t willing to give up any more than a fourth rounder for the San Francisco quarterback.
The Broncos have told the 49ers they believe Kaepernick is worth a fourth-round pick. They'd have to figure out a way to make that work.

There are two immediate problems here. First, San Francisco has reportedly asked for a second round pick – or, in the case of the Cleveland Browns, a very high third rounder – for Kaepernick. Second, Denver doesn’t even have a fourth round pick, having traded it in an earlier deal.
This would indicate that there is some serious separation in the two sides’ valuation of the player, and it may be a factor in Denver’s reported increased interest in Ryan Fitzpatrick.
