10 Ridiculously Specific Predictions That Came True

7. Colin Kaepernick


Predicted: Team he would play pro football for as a nine-year-old.

Colin Kaepernick was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 2011, and spent his entire rookie season on the bench behind Alex Smith, who was having a breakout year; the Niners would eventually lose the NFC Championship to the eventual Super Bowl champion New York Giants. Kaepernick threw for 257 yards, no touchdowns and five interceptions in relief of Smith that year; there’s no way he could have predicted he’d be the Niners’ starter the following season, and he didn’t. He predicted it when he was a grade schooler.

Nine-year-old Colin, describing himself as a “good athelet” stated in the school assignment seen above his intention to play for the 49ers, or possibly the Packers, “even if they aren’t good in seven years”. Okay, so his spelling and math might have been a little questionable, but his predictive powers were mighty impressive—even if he got one aspect slightly off; the cannon-armed quarterback’s breakout game in 2012 was a 45-31 destruction of the Green Bay Packers.
