Player Overview

Four-star recruit from Texas chose to sign with Oklahoma and redshirted in 2010. All-Big 12 first team selection in 2014 with 12 starts at left guard but missed the Russell Athletic Bowl due to injury. He leaves Oklahoma with 40 career starts in a tempo offense that doesn't utilize a cadence or traditional line calls he'll need to handle in the NFL. As a short-area mauler, Shead can be effective but he is not going to win on every down in the NFL because of his heavy feet and inability to square up and stick second-level defenders.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Naturally wide, massive man with tree trunk thickness. Carries his weight well. Game is all power. When he latches on, it's usually game over. Clubs with a two-hand jolt and shows some ability to combo blocker. All attitude and wants to win. Uses length effectively. Balanced athlete with good arm length to keep rushers from his body. Adequate foot quickness and lateral shuffle to mirror and pick up extra rushers on the move in pass protection. Heady and alert, adjusting to stunts. Fierce hands and looks to bury his man as a drive blocker. Quick off the snap with consistent pop at contact. Four-year starter.

WEAKNESSES: Heavy middle with bad weight. Mechanical in his movements with average flexibility. Inconsistent at the second level. Needs to improve technique on the move, lowering his head prematurely and whiffing. Eager blocker, but will overextend and too often winds up on the ground. Fails to consistently bring his feet with him. Hunched at the waist too much with inconsistent timing as a cut blocker. Too much of a catch blocker in pass protection, not forceful with his hands.
