NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) – Possible Giants pick Mark Ingram enters the NFL draft armed with a Heisman Trophy, a national title and the cover of a popular video game.

The former Alabama running back and 2009 Heisman winner says he’ll also bring two healthy knees.

“The knee is really a non-issue,” he told WFAN’s Boomer & Carton on Thursday morning. “It’s strong, it’s 100 percent healthy, it’s solid, it’s a perfect knee.”

Ingram had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Aug. 31, but missed only the first two games. He is generally projected as a late first-round pick, though that’s a drop from his initial mid-first round status.

He said he’ll have to wait until tonight to see how the Giants — and other teams — feel about him.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen, I have no clue,” said the NFL hopeful. “My guess is just as good as yours. Just the fact that my dad played up here and won a Super Bowl, it’s kind of crazy if you think about it.”

Ingram’s father, Mark, was drafted by the Giants in the first round in 1987. But the elder Ingram won’t be at Radio City with his son. Instead, he’ll be watching from a federal penitentiary in Kentucky.

“He doesn’t really care,” Ingram said. “He’s ready to see where I go to, he’ll be the biggest fan.”

If Ingram falls to New York — and Giants general manager Jerry Reese pulls the trigger — he’ll find himself scrambling for the team he pulled for as a kid.

“I had a little bias toward the Giants, just because my dad played there and won a Super Bowl with them,” he said. “I always kind of liked them just because he was a part of that.”

Ingram ran for 875 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. As a sophomore, he had 1,658 yards rushing and 17 touchdowns to lead the Crimson Tide to the national title.
