New York Giants Notes: O'Hara Has Second Surgery

Perhaps the New York Giants should select a center in the first round of next month's NFL Draft after all.

The Giants now have three centers that recently underwent surgeries, as ESPNNewYork.com reported Wednesday that Shaun O'Hara underwent surgery on his left ankle and Achilles this week. The surgery is O'Hara's second of the offseason, as he had a couple of screws inserted in his right foot in the aftermath of his Lisfranc injury last season.

"They basically told me I probably won't start running until mid-May," O'Hara said while attending a charity event earlier in March. "The one thing they assured me is I will be 100 percent healthy for training camp."

Adam Koets and Rich Seubert are also recovering from surgery. Koets is recovering from a torn ACL, while Seubert had surgery to repair a dislocated kneecap, as well as ligament and tendon damage.

Earlier this month, the Giants were one of four teams to individually work out guard/center Mike Pouncey at the University of Florida's pro day. Pouncey has repeatedly been linked to the Giants at the No. 19 pick, and the former Gator impressed scouts once again after doing the same in February's NFL Scouting Combine. Pouncey bench-pressed 225 pounds 24 times and did every drill requested by scouts.

The subjects of this story came before my time - forgive me, I'm young - but nevertheless, it's kind of cool to hear the offensive line from the Giants' Super Bowl XXI championship team will reunite later this spring.

Center Bart Oates, guards Bill Ard and Chris Godfrey and tackles Karl Nelson and Brad Benson will be honored at a dinner to benefit Life Athletes May 12 at the New Meadowlands Stadium Legacy Club. Current Hall of Famer and former Giant Frank Gifford will be the master of ceremonies.

Finally, Ed discussed this earlier this week but it bears repeating given Akeem Ayers consistent linkage with the Giants. At UCLA's pro day, the outside linebacker improved on his Combine performance by running between a 4.69- and 4.7-second 40-yard dash. Ayers ran a 4.8 at the Combine last month.
