Travis Kelce holds the distinction of being one of the greatest tight ends in the history of football, giving his words significant influence. Not only is he dating the renowned singer Taylor Swift, but he also has the remarkable opportunity to compete in the Super Bowl alongside Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. What’s more, he proudly supports the Iowa Hawkeyes, showcasing his diverse interests and passions.
During Super Bowl Opening Night, Kelce took the time to speak with the media and was asked about the top tight ends in the league. Without hesitation, he immediately praised two of Iowa’s very own.

“I think you can’t go wrong with guys like George Kittle or Sam LaPorta. The Iowa Hawkeyes are really producing some great tight ends,” Kelce shared his thoughts on the top tight ends in the NFL.
Travis Kelce will be going head-to-head with George Kittle, one of the top tight ends, in Super Bowl LVIII as the Kansas City Chiefs face off against the San Francisco 49ers. It’s noteworthy that Kelce has mentioned rookie Sam LaPorta from the Detroit Lions in the same conversation as Kittle.
The tight end position witnessed a trio of players who absolutely dominated this season. Kittle emerged as the leader, topping all other tight ends with an impressive 1,020 yards in the regular season. LaPorta, on the other hand, stood out as the only tight end to reach double-digit touchdowns, finishing with an impressive ten. Meanwhile, Kelce showcased his incredible consistency, consistently ranking among the top three in receptions, yards, and touchdowns.
Super Bowl LVIII will take place on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 5:30 p.m. CT on CBS. The highly anticipated game will be held in Las Vegas, and it’s almost certain that a tight end will play a crucial role in determining the team that will claim the Lombardi Trophy.
