As soon as a player is signed, I assume he can be given a playbook and have access to team facilities, including the film room. Drills and such is limited by the CBA. April 15 is the first day of ota's for the Texans.
(edit) I may have assumed wrong. According to B0ng, he still would have to be "officially" drafted. So the contract may not become "effective" until the draft.
