Notes:

Was an all-conference wide receiver and defensive back, who also ran track, as a California prep. Also competes for the track team at Portland State as a standout hurdler and sprinter. Redshirted in 2007. Earned the starting cornerback spot as a freshman and started all 11 games in ’08, recording 51 tackles, seven pass breakups and a Big Sky Conference-leading six interceptions with two tackles for loss and a forced fumble. Led the team in interceptions in ’09 after posting 45-7-3 with one tackle for loss and one forced fumble in 11 starts at cornerback. Had a 31-yard interception return for a touchdown against Weber State. Did not record an interception in ’10 as teams stopped throwing his way but managed 51-7-0 with five tackles for loss and one sack in 11 starts – nine at cornerback and the last two games at safety. Returned 11 kickoffs for 209 yards (19.0-yard average). Moved to strong safety in ’11 when he started all 11 games and produced 64-8-2 (74-yard TD against Northern Colorado) with five tackles for loss, a sack and three forced fumbles. Added 15-392 (26.1) on kickoffs.

Summary:

Big, strong, long-armed, four-year starter who played safety and cornerback and returned kickoffs. Tested well at pro day — did 24 bench-press reps and recorded a 38-inch vertical leap, a broad jump of 10 feet 1 inch, a short-shuttle time of 4.23 seconds and a 3-cone drill time of 6.76 seconds. Smarter than he is instinctive, Shead’s tape is less impressive than his measurables, as he is restricted by stiff hips and inconsistent tackling.
