Former NFL wide receiver and St. Louis Rams great Torry Holt is well known for his achievements on the football field, but it turns out his skills as an NFL analyst go back much further than you might think.

Though still an active member of the Rams in April of 2005, Holt joined Mel Kiper Jr., Chris Berman and Chris Mortensen for some live commentary and analysis during the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft as Aaron Rodgers continued to drop down the board.

Despite Berman, Mortensen and Kiper all having much more experience as draft analysts, Holt was the only one that absolutely nailed where Rodgers would end up: the Green Bay Packers.

Talk about a smooth and confident delivery.

While everyone else at that table took nearly a full two minutes to get their points across, Holt simply stands in and lays down the law in a matter of seconds. Shortly after, he would be spot-on too, as the Packers selected Rodgers with the No. 24 pick.
