Nathaniel Burleson (born August 19, 1981) is an American football player, who currently plays wide receiver for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League (NFL). Burleson played college football for the University of Nevada Wolf Pack, and was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the third round of the 2003 NFL Draft.

Burleson has also played for the Seattle Seahawks. He is the son of former Canadian Football League (CFL) and United States Football League (USFL) player Alvin Burleson and the younger brother of former National Basketball Association (NBA) player Kevin Burleson.

Burleson was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. At the time his father, Alvin Burleson, was playing defensive back for the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL). He was born into a prolific and tight-knit sporting family. His oldest brother, Alvin Jr., played college football for the University of Washington Huskies and the Western Illinois University Leathernecks. Another older brother, Kevin, plays professional basketball and was formerly a point guard for the Charlotte Bobcats of the National Basketball League (NBA).
