Here is my best explanation:

'plan' is the definition.
(drafting is a kind of planning)

'beginning to disappoint large number' is the wordplay.
'beginning to' suggests taking the first letters.
'large number' becomes 'raft' (I can't explain this - if you can you should believe this answer much more).
The first letter of 'disappoint' is 'd'.
'd'+'raft'='DRAFT'
