All-Big East player at Rutgers, played the previous four seasons for the Cleveland Browns. He is also an outstanding long snapper.
"Center is my more natural position," said O'Hara, who was in New Jersey this weekend visiting his parents when he got the call from the Giants that the team was interested in him. "I played center my first two years at Cleveland, and then they switched me to guard. I like playing center. You've got to be smart and you've got to be vocal, and it fits my personality.
"It hasn't really sunk in yet that I'm a Giant. Things happened so fast this weekend."
In his career, he has played 54 regular season games, with 38 starts. O'Hara has started the last 34 games in which he played.
O'Hara played in 14 games in the 2003 season, starting six games at right guard and eight games at left guard. He was inactive for games against San Diego and New England with a knee injury.
