Leading receiver Mecole Hardman predicted before the season that he would beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl, and he could be proven right around the corner after a midseason change of scenery.

Hardman started the season with the Jets, and expectations were high after the arrival of Aaron Rodgers when the 25-year-old told mentalist Oz Pearlman on ‘Hard Knocks’ that Gang Green would win the final game 31-21.

But the wideout was traded back to Kansas City (where he spent the first four years of his career) on Oct. 18, and now his preseason prediction has resurfaced online with the Chiefs set to face the 49ers for the title in two weeks.

Pearlman reposted the clip to his X account writes this week ‘Mecole Hardman may have just predicted his own future!!’

In the video, it is revealed that the mentalist also predicted a 31-21 Jets win over the 49ers, as he shows a poster board with the score already written on it.

Hardman has made a modest impact on the Kansas City offense since returning in October

Hardman saw minimal playing time in New York, as he tallied just one catch for six yards before being dealt back to Kansas City.

He was traded along with a 2025 seventh-round pick for a 2025 sixth-round pick.

Hardman was slightly more impactful in KC, as he finished the regular season with 124 receiving yards in 11 games.

The receiver had a brutal game in the divisional round against Buffalo, fumbled twice, including a drop from the one-yard line as he tried to break the plane of the end zone.

Nevertheless, Hardman can collect his third ring in two weeks if the Chiefs can defeat the 49ers.
