Draper attended Parkside School in Stoke d’Abernon, Cobham, from age four to eleven, whilst being coached by Justin Sherring. He then attended Reed's School, Cobham for two years.

Draper reached his first and only junior Grand Slam final at the 2018 Wimbledon Championships, where he lost to Tseng Chun-hsin in three sets. He closed the year at a career-high junior ranking of No. 7.

Draper made his ATP Tour main draw debut in singles as a wildcard at the 2021 Miami Open but had to retire after he collapsed on the court due to heat-related illness.

At the 2021 Queen's Club Championships in London in June 2021, Draper secured the biggest win of his career to date with a victory over World No. 23, Jannik Sinner, as a wildcard. He defeated world No. 39 Alexander Bublik in the round of 16 to reach the quarterfinals of an ATP tournament for the first time in his career, where he lost to eventual finalist Cameron Norrie. By reaching this stage of the tournament, he became the youngest British ATP quarterfinalist since Andy Murray in 2006 and earned a top 250 debut in the ATP rankings.

He received a wildcard into the singles main draw of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, where he will face world No. 1 and defending champion Novak Djokovic in the first round, where he claimed the first set 6–4 before losing the next three sets to cede the match.

In January, Draper entered the 2022 Città di Forlì II, an ATP Challenger Tour event, in Forlì, where he was the eighth seed. There, he reached his first Challenger final and won his first title on the tour after defeating compatriot Jay Clarke, 6–3, 6–0. Two weeks later, Draper continued his run of form at the Città di Forlì IV, where he was unseeded and reached his second final to claim his second Challenger title after defeating Tim van Rijthoven, 6–1, 6–2. The win led Draper to debut in the top 200 and reach a new career high of world No. 162. Draper secured his third consecutive Challenger title in his third Forlì tournament at Città di Forlì V the following week after saving four match points in the final to defeat Alexander Ritschard in three sets.
