Sam LaPorta Destined For Big

The Lions rookie tight end Sam LaPorta is certain to make noise in the 2023-24 season.

LaPorta, a dynamic playmaker, is the right fit for the explosive Detroit Lions offense. He has become a prime target for quarterback Jared Goff and is promised to become a draft steal for the Lions.

Sam is physically strong and is a big-time threat in the red zone. During training camp and the preseason, he has emerged as an impressive rookie, earning praise from the head coach Dan Campbell.

“We believe he can handle a substantial workload. Mentally, he’s exceptionally sharp for a rookie,” Campbell remarked. “We expect him to grasp the playbook quickly as he gains more reps.”

The Illinois native made his debut in a 21-20 win over the 2022 Super Bowl winner Kansas City Chiefs.

LaPorta caught more passes than all of the rookie tight ends caught (combined) in Week 1 of the 2022 season.
