BIO: Awarded both all-conference and all-academic honors as a senior after completing 59.6 percent/ 3,160/21/14. Also added 167 yards on the ground with four additional scores. Moved into the starting lineup as a junior and threw for 57.2 percent/3,037/23/5 on his way to being named Gateway Conference Offensive Player of the Year. Also earned All-Academic honors that season.
POSITIVES: Productive left-handed quarterback effective on the small-school level. Sets up to deliver the ball with solid footwork, patient in the pocket and works to find the open wide out. Buys time for receivers, scans the field and goes through receiver progressions. Excellent poise in the pocket, awareness and sells the ball fakes. Does not force throws and goes to the safe underneath outlet if nothing is available or displays the ability to make plays with his legs. Rolls outside of tackle and makes the throw on the move. Tough and sits in the pocket, waiting until the last second before releasing the throw even if it means taking a lot of punishment. Accurate between the numbers and puts passes where only his receivers can make the reception. Solid arm in the short field.
NEGATIVES: Short, has difficulty seeing over the line and passes are batted away. Lacks the big arm and loses speed throwing on the move. Must gather and ready himself before releasing the ball, can not zip the outs or drive the deep ball downfield. Does not throw over the top, rather has a three-quarters delivery.
ANALYSIS: An outstanding leader in complete control of the offense, Michna is a top competitor that does well with the tools given to him. Even with that he lacks the pocket stature and arm strength to be anything other than late-round pick in April. Could have a coach take a liking to him and end up as a third quarterback at the next level.
