The 2016 NFL Draft is almost upon us and that means the culmination of months of work for the general managers and scouts across the league. After poring over hours and hours of player interviews, game tape and testing variables, it will soon be time to make the picks that make the difference between winners and losers in the NFL. And that means there will be significant pressure to get it right.For some teams, that pressure to succeed in the war room in the coming days is greater than ever. Here are six teams I feel absolutely have to come out of this Draft feeling good about their work in Chicago. Beginners guide Why is the Draft important? Cleveland Browns Ben Roethlisberger was selected 11th overall by the Steelers in 2004 after the Browns missed out In recent years, the Cleveland Browns have wheeled and dealed around draft boards and turned their back on the chance to draft genuine NFL superstars such as Ben Roethlisberger, Julio Jones and Odell Beckham Jr. in the process.Instead, the Browns have collected multiple draft picks and, for the most part, wasted them. So what have the Browns done this year under new management? The very same thing that hurt this club in the past - they have turned down the chance to select the second quarterback in this NFL Draft and must now make good on the multiple picks heading their way over the next three years.The approach makes sense given that the Browns are so devoid of talent and need to fill multiple areas of need. But this time around they have to hit on the multiple selections, especially if Carson Wentz turns out to be a star and the Browns are still searching for their first true franchise quarterback since re-entering the NFL in 1999.Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck will celebrate if the Colts recruit some protection for him The recent drafting history of Colts general manager Ryan Grigson has not been all that great, in my mind. Indianapolis were crying out for an offensive lineman early last year and Grigson spoiled himself by grabbing another wide receiver in Phillip Dorsett when that was not an area of need.The Colts need to add some beef in the trenches - on offense and defense - and have to find a way to get franchise quarterback Andrew Luck some better protection. And this team cannot be pushed around as badly as they have been in recent years on defense.Grigson and head coach Chuck Pagano were at loggerheads last year yet both received four-year contract extensions. Its time for them to make their marriage of convenience work and that means drafting as many big men as possible in the coming days.New York Giants After signing Olivier Vernon, how much is left in the kitty? When the Giants stumbled to the end of a disappointing 2015 campaign, head coach Tom Coughlin paid with his job and was replaced by Ben McAdoo. Many felt the same fate would fall upon general manager Jerry Reese, but he somehow survived and although his seat is hot, he has a chance to re-build a crumbling roster.Reese did a nice job in free agency but massively over-spent in signing Olivier Vernon, Jason Pierre-Paul, Damon Harrison and Janoris Jenkins. Thats not the most financially prudent way to stock your roster and the Big Blue could pay for that extravagance down the road. This Draft is crucial for Reese to find some younger and cheaper players.He should be feeling the heat as Giants owner John Mara said: Every Draft is important but this one more so than usual. Its time to pick it up.Gulp!San Francisco 49ers Will the 49ers try to replace Colin Kaepernick? This time last year the 49ers were suffering through a series of high-profile defections and retirements. And they have yet to even scratch the surface in terms of rebuilding their roster.The Niners had money to spend in free agency but seemingly wanted no part of the spending spree and that puts added pressure on general manager Trent Baalke heading into this NFL Draft.San Franciscos needs are multiple and we have to wonder if they currently have their starting quarterback on the roster in Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick. The 49ers have to stop the bleeding and begin their rebuild and it all begins with this Draft.Denver Broncos Malik Jacksons exit means Denver have large shoes to fill Defending Super Bowl champions dont normally hit too many panic buttons heading into an NFL Draft the following year but the off-season raid of the Denver Broncos has raised the stakes for the Mile High club.It was bad enough for Denver to lose Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan on their Super Bowl defence, but what are they planning to do at quarterback? Brock Osweiler jumped ship and joined in Houston and I have to wonder what the Broncos are going to do about that all-important position in Chicago this week.The Broncos currently have Mark Sanchez and Trevor Siemian on their roster and, in my mind, neither is anything close to being the long-term answer. Whether it be via a conventional pick or a trade, the Broncos have to do something at quarterback this week.New Orleans Saints Saints may opt to replace Drew Brees or bring in protection for him The Saints are feeling the heat on the defensive side of the ball because they set numerous unwanted records in 2015. Can they upgrade that unit enough in the coming days and not waste yet another season for Drew Brees?Or will they draft the eventual replacement for the 37-year-old Brees? There has been some reported interest in Paxton Lynch out of Memphis but taking a passer in the first round might rock the boat just a tad too much on Thursday night.Its also important to remember that the Saints have some serious salary cap issues and would love to stock their roster with some younger and cheaper players. This is a vital draft for the Saints if they are go get back into playoff contention.

One more victory for the Orange and it will be three titles in three trips. Tyler Ennis scored 28 points and led two key second-half runs that carried No. 8 Syracuse past California 92-81 on Tuesday night in the tournament semifinals. The Orange will play for the championship Wednesday against No. 18 Baylor, which edged Dayton 67-66. Syracuse won the Maui Invitational in 1990 and 1998. "These two games out here have been great games, great for our team," coach Jim Boeheim said. Syracuse scored 51 points in the second half, shooting 55 per cent and making five of seven 3-point attempts. Ennis had 17 points and Trevor Cooney scored 20 of his 23 after the break. "Our guards were unbelievable today and I didnt even know that until I looked at the stat sheet," Boeheim said. "I knew they were pretty good, but they were better." Jerami Grant finished with 19 points while C.J. Fair had 14 points and seven rebounds. Cooney said its different to shoot in a small gym. "We play in a dome, its open, different backdrop and this is totally different for us," Cooney said. "The gym is warm, the legs get going and you can get into a rhythm here and thats what we have been doing." Ennis hit a layup during a nine-point run started by Grants putback dunk. The spurt lasted more than 2 minutes and gave Syracuse (6-0) its fiirst double-digit lead with less than 8 minutes left.dddddddddddd "We probably lost our focus momentarily, and just kind of turned and got careless with the ball," California coach Mike Montgomery said. Justin Cobbs scored 18 points for the Golden Bears (5-1), who will play the Dayton-Baylor loser in the third-place game. The game was close until midway through the second half, with 10 ties and 12 lead changes. Cal tied it at 41 going into halftime when Tyrone Wallace hit two free throws after being fouled on a rebound by Ennis. David Kravish then hit a layup to start the second half, but Ennis responded with his own layup 30 seconds later. Cobbs gave Cal a four-point run to tie the game at 54. He made a nifty pass in traffic to set up Jordan Mathews for a dunk, then stole the ball from Cooney on the next possession and scampered for a dunk. Grant responded with a jumper and Syracuse led the rest of the game. Jabari Bird scored 17 points for Cal and Kravish had 15. The Bears played without Richard Solomon because of an abrasion on his right eye. Solomon started Cals previous five games. "With Solomon being out it was just a different team," Boeheim said. "I thought watching Cal yesterday that their team this year is much better than last years team that we played (in the NCAA tournament)." Syracuse beat Cal last season to reach the Sweet Sixteen on the way to the Final Four.
