The saying around the press and other media at Radio City Music Hall is that the Thursday night first round primetime broadcast (which generated insane ratings last night) is the NFL gone Hollywood. Tonight, with the second and third rounds, the draft goes back to what it essentially was before the league went primetime.

There are no "superstars" tonight, per say. This is about teams looking for value, filling in roster roles and increasing depth.

Matthew Fairburn of Mocking The Draft has compiled a list (from their top prospects chart) of the best available players for teams like the Indianapolis Colts looking for talent in rounds two and three.

11. Courtney Upshaw | 6'2 1/2, 273 pounds | Outside linebacker/end | Alabama
13. Devon Still | 6'5, 312 pounds | Defensive tackle | Penn State
15. Jonathan Martin | 6'6, 305 pounds | Offensive tackle | Stanford
16. Peter Konz | 6'5, 313 pounds | Center | Wisconsin
23. Brandon Thompson | 6'2, 310 pounds | Defensive tackle | Clemson
25. Cordy Glenn | 6'5 1/2, 346 pounds | Tackle/guard | Georgia
27. Janoris Jenkins | 5'10, 183 pounds | Cornerback | North Alabama
28. Andre Branch | 6'5, 260 pounds | Defensive end | Clemson
29. Lavonte David | 6'1, 220 pounds | Outside linebacker | Nebraska
30. Dwayne Allen | 6'4, 255 pounds | Tight end | Clemson
33. Coby Fleener | 6'5 3/4, 247 pounds | Tight end | Stanford
34. Alshon Jeffery | 6'4, 232 pounds | Wide receiver | South Carolina
35. Vinny Curry | 6'3, 265 pounds | Defensive end | Marshall
39. Lamar Miller | 5'11, 211 pounds | Running back | Miami
40. Kelechi Osemele | 6'5 3/8, 333 pounds | Tackle/guard | Iowa State
41. Jamell Fleming | 5'11, 192 pounds | Cornerback | Oklahoma
42. Orson Charles | 6'2 1/2, 251 pounds | Tight end | Georgia
45. Mohamed Sanu | 6'2, 215 pounds | Wide receiver | Rutgers
46. Jerel Worthy | 6'3, 305 pounds | Defensive tackle | Michigan State
47. Zach Brown | 6'1 3/8, 236 pounds | Outside linebacker | North Carolina
49. Amini Silatolu | 6'3, 324 pounds | Tackle/guard | Midwestern State
50. Mike Adams | 6'7, 323 pounds | Offensive tackle | Ohio State

From talking to fans on Twitter this morning, the consensus among many is that if Coby Fleener is still there at pick No. 34, the Colts should take him. We had a similar scenario play out in our 2012 SB Nation NFL Writers Mock Draft where I (drafting for the Colts) had Fleener fall to me at 34, and I took him.

However, with Top Ten talent like Janoris Jenkins of North Alabama sitting there, or Alabama's Courtney Upshaw or Georgia's Cordy Glenn still available, Fleener is not so obvious a pick anymore.

This should make for a very interesting second day for the Colts.
