Well, I don`t watch much college football, so I don`t know what I´m talking about here - but I´ve read some very high praise about Bridgewater. As high as "outside of Luck he is the best college QB prospect of the last 10 years."
The combine will tell a lot, but of course you don`t take him, if you are not convinced in his ability.
But when you like him you take him, even if you think Clowney or Matthews is the better player - simply because a QB is that much harder to get and more valuable. I am sure the Texans go in this draft wanting to get a QB and hoping, that there is one they feel good about.
And I am sure that there will be offers for the first pick - some team will love Bridgewater or Clowney and be ready to offer 2 firsts and a second for him at the least...
