San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis made an appearance at Coolidge High School in Washington D.C. in order to deliver a speech to the student body. At the end of his speech he made a bold prediction that got everyone fired up.

"I will be the best tight end to ever play this game. I have a vision," Davis said, per WUSA-TV.

"It can. It doesn't matter," Davis said. "Anything is possible. I say that because ... what can happen? If I don't make it, then I don't make it. It's as simple as that. Ain't nothing nobody can do, ain't nothing nobody can say. But if I do? Then I spoke it into existence."

Davis is a phenomenal talent and when his career is over, some people may end up considering him the best tight end ever.
