Let's see...

Sans "headiness",
A player stands at the shortstop position,
has excellent range,
can throw on target,
can successfully field the hardest balls hit in his excellent range...

After that everything a shortstop does requires headiness...

This other guy may pick the ball up and not know where to throw it,
may not put himself in the right place to make plays (A's playoff game),
may not cover 2nd base when it's his job to do so on a stolen base attempt...
may collide with an outfielder going after a ball hit in between the infield & the outfield...
If I were more heady I could rattle off more, in fact the sentence before this paragraph says it all. (the one in bold)
Hiya OGM! I would postulate that "Headiness" has nothing to do with a ball players defense or offense for that matter though maybe a little with leadership which is where Jeter truly excelled (oh and with the ladies as well). I mean how does being shrewd or intelligent have anything to do with playing better defense? Think about it, as defense is a combination of learned memory (practice and experience) and physical skills. Without excelling at those, smartness gets you nada. Does that make sense?
