NEW YORK: Coby Fleener heard his name, grabbed his phone and immediately contacted his new teammate in Indianapolis and old teammate from Stanford.

The overnight wait paid off for the Stanford tight end. Hes reuniting with his college quarterback, a guy named Andrew Luck.

Fleener wasnt chosen in the first round of the NFL Draft, in which Luck was the top selection. He got a nice consolation prize Friday night, when the Indianapolis Colts grabbed him with the second pick of the second round.

Among the other notable selections on the second day of the draft were: Oregon running back LaMichael James by the San Francisco 49ers, Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson by the Seattle Seahawks and Alabama linebacker Courtney Upshaw by the Baltimore Ravens.

Chances are very good Fleener will become a starter and a main target for Luck in Indianapolis.

I just sent him a text message that had a lot of exclamation points in it, said Fleener, who had 10 touchdown catches last season and 18 for his career in Stanfords prodigious offense. I expected to be on a team where I wasnt familiar with the offense or the quarterback. I cant wait to get started, to be honest with you.

Indy not only parted with four-time Most Valuable Player quarterback Peyton Manning this year, but also lost tight end Jacob Tamme to free agency and isnt expected to bring back injury-ravaged veteran Dallas Clark.

For me, getting to play with him the past couple of years, it is speed, he is dynamic, Luck said. Anytime we crossed the 50-yard line it seemed like we just said, Coby, go run. Go run past the safeties. Hopefully it continues to work out.

The Rams actually used their own pick to begin the second round, selecting Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick. The Rams traded down twice in the first round the previous night, accumulating several extra picks and also taking LSU defensive tackle Michael Brockers 14th overall. In the second-round spot they earned for going 2-14 in 2011, the Rams took a wideout from an FCS powerhouse. The 6-foot-4 Quick had a strong Senior Bowl, showing he could play at the highest college level and helping his stock in the draft.

Upshaw of the national champion Crimson Tide was the Ravens first pick of this draft. The Ravens were projected by many to take Upshaw in the first round, but dealt away the pick. Four of Upshaws teammates went in the first round.

Janoris Jenkins, a cornerback at North Alabama who was kicked off the team at Florida, went to the Rams six picks after they took Quick. Jenkins, holding an infant in his arms, had tears in his eyes as he spoke by phone with the Rams.

I just be honest, Jenkins said about talking about his past transgressions. I dont have nothing to hide. That was my past, that was a year ago. I took my second route to go to UNA for a reason, to show people I wasnt a bad kid and I wasnt running from my problems.

Division II guard Amini Silatolu, a member of the Little All-America team, was the eighth overall selection in the second round by Carolina.

It took 11 picks before Fridays first trade, with the New York Jets moving up four slots and surrendering a fifth- and seventh-rounder to the Seahawks to take Georgia Tech wide receiver Stephen Hill. The Jets need a deep-threat wideout, and Hill was the fastest player at the NFL combine. But he also comes from a running offense.

I feel great, especially now that Im in an offense where I can catch the ball a little bit more, Hill said.

Hill pumped his arms to the fans in the balcony at Radio City Music Hall after having his name announced by Wesley Walker, one of the best deep receivers the team has had.

The Rams then pulled off another deal. The Bears swapped with the Rams to move up five spots and get South Carolina receiver Alshon Jeffrey.

A smaller flurry of trades occurred Friday, five involving nine teams. Not surprisingly, the New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were involved in deals, just as they were in the opening round.

Two All-Americans defensive linemen were chosen in the second round: Devon Still of Penn State by the Cincinnati Bengals and Jerel Worthy of Michigan State by the Green Bay Packers. Also chosen, by the Lions, was Oklahoma standout receiver Ryan Broyles, who wrecked his left knee in November after setting NCAA career records.

James, the nations leading rusher in 2010, went to San Francisco 61st overall. He joins a crowded backfield with Frank Gore and Brandon Jacobs.

The Giants finished the second round by selecting LSU receiver Rueben Randle, the last of 26 players invited to the draft to be chosen.

Ohio State wide receiver DeVier Posey, who was suspended for five games in 2011, was taken by the Houston Texans.

Punter Bryan Anger of California, the first kicker chosen this year, joined the Jacksonville Jaguars.
