ATHENS — Kirby Smart sends the same message every year, that the best players will play, regardless of class.

That was evident last season when Georgia led the nation with three FWAA Freshmen All-American selections.

There are young Bulldogs are starting the year at the head of the class once again.

Georgia is one of three schools with four freshman players on the FWAA Freshman Player of the Year watch list, matching SEC rivals Tennessee and Alabama in that regard.

Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence was the FWAA Freshman of the Year last season, garnering that honor before he beat Alabama in the College Football Playoff Championship Game.

Tailback Zamir White and receiver George Pickens are two of the 37 offensive players on the watch list released on Friday.

White, coming off ACL tears in each knee the past two years, is also a candidate for the FWAA Most Inspirational Player of the Year Award. Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez won that award last season.

WATCH: Zamir White runs through another linebacker

The Bulldogs have two players among the 37 defensive and special teams players on the watch list, outside linebackers Azeez Ojulari an Nolan Smith.

Georgia might have had a fifth player on the watch list, but inside linebacker Nakobe Dean has been hobbled by a high ankle sprain.

The FWAA Freshman Watch List will be updated weekly.

The three Bulldogs on last year’s FWAA Freshman All-American Team were:

• Defensive lineman Jordan Davis

• Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson
