While it has been previously reported that the Steelers had dinner Wednesday night with Ray, we now also know that they also broke bread with Golden as well, thanks to a report by Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star.
Ray, who did not work out at the combine several weeks ago, recorded a 33-inch vertical and a 10-foot broad jump Thursday in addition to reportedly running a unofficial 40-yard-dash time of 4.63 seconds,.
As for Golden, who ran a 4.9 second 40-yard-dassh at the combine, he apparently improved that time Thursday by registering a new unofficial time of 4.66 seconds.
Ray is expected to be drafted in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft while Golden is regarded by many as being a third or fourth round prospect.
