In brief: Graft choice
Acls are reconstructed in several ways.
One way is to take the central third of your patella tendon with bone attached at either end and reconstruct your acl using this tissue.

In brief: Acl knee
The middle third of the patella tendon, the ttendon below the knee cap, is taken with bone on each end one from the patella and the other from the tibia, or shin bone, this is used to make a new acl ligament.
