The Patriots are hoping they've found a successor to Tom Brady in former Eastern Illinois quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo.

And while he still has a ways to go when it comes to football, in terms of looks Garoppolo may be ahead of Brady.

Garoppolo didn't get much national exposure during his college career, so last week's NFL draft provided many spectators with their first look at him. And when he was selected with the 62nd overall pick, people weren't shy about how they felt:

And now, a new (and admittedly unscientific) poll confirms that Garopollo is more handsome than his model teammate. Outsports.com asked readers to vote on which QB was better-looking, and as of Monday night Garopollo was winning in a landslide. The 22-year-old from suburban Chicago garnered about 80 percent of the 2,660 votes cast.

Want to judge for yourself? Here are a few photos from Garopollo's Instagram account:
