04:42 AM ET 12.18 | There is no question that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is one of the hottest men in the NFL at the moment - and that's a double pun, if you ask the ladies. There's not much to not like about the young quarterback who's growing into the next elite quarterback in the NFL, in fact the more we learn about him, the more we like him. When a person gets famous, for some reason we are obsessed with finding out things about them they did before they were famous. In Kaepernick's case, a letter he wrote to himself in the 4th grade is floating around, and the 49ers gunslinger is less like a quarterback and more like Nostradamus. Not only is the note wholly adorable, but Kaepernick nailed almost every prediction he wrote about where he'd be as an adult. In the note, Kaepernick said that he would one day be 6-foot-four, go to a good college and one day play for the San Francisco 49ers - even if they aren't good.

Never thought of Nevada as being a "good college." Well, OK, he didn't say "great college."

Thru it all the guy can play football, he will make big mistakes and also make some very big plays, but once he settles down he will be one of the top young quarterbacks in the league!
