The 1951 NBA Draft was the fifth annual draft of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The draft was held on April 25, 1951, prior to the 1951–52 season. In this draft, ten remaining NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U.S. college basketball players. In the draft, the teams select in reverse order of their win-loss record in the previous season. The Tri-Cities Blackhawks relocated to Milwaukeemarker, Wisconsinmarker and became the Milwaukee Hawks prior to the start of the season. The draft consisted of 12 rounds with 87 players selected.

Gene Melchiorre from Bradley Universitymarker was selected first overall by the Baltimore Bullets. However, he never played in the NBA due to his involvement in a point shaving scandal while playing college basketball. Third pick Marc Freiberger also did not play in the NBA. Myer Skoog from University of Minnesotamarker was selected before the draft as Minneapolis Lakers' territorial pick.
