Colin Kaepernick adds fortune teller to his long list of accomplishments. 

The 2012 season has been another rousing success for the San Francisco 49ers, despite going through something of a quarterback controversy. 

San Francisco took down the Patriots on Sunday with their second-year QB throwing for over 200 yards and four touchdowns. 

On Monday, some more startling news surfaced. Kaepernick is fairly clairvoyant.

At least, he was back in the fourth grade when he wrote this letter tweeted out by Sports Illustrated's Bryan Armen Graham (h/t BuzzFeed).

Does Colin Kaepernick have any stock tips? Check out the letter he wrote himself in fourth grade.

That would be a letter written 16 years ago when Kaepernick was just over 90 pounds and a little over five feet tall. 

Years later, he is making good on one of the more spectacular claims in that letter. While he is 6'4", just like he promised in the missive, he is also playing for the Niners. 

While he also mentioned the Packers, I think they will be just fine with the guy they have lobbing up touchdowns over in Green Bay. 

This serves as a lesson for you kids out there. Aim for the loftiest goals you can imagine, because you may just accomplish them.
