Focusing on critical hits isn't a reliable strategy. Its defensive typing is better suited for taking resisted special moves, since its base 110 Defense is somewhat undermined by a weakness to Earthquake:
-Toxic Spikes
-Whirlwind/Knock Off
Nature: Careful
EVs: 248 HP/244 SDef/16 Spe
Item: Black Sludge
Ability: Battle Armor

If you want a more offensive take on Drapion, use these:
-Swords Dance
-Aqua Tail/Poison Jab/Taunt
Nature: Jolly
EVs: 252 Atk/4 Def/252 Spe
item: Life Orb/Lum Berry/Black Sludge
Ability: Sniper

-Aqua Tail/Poison Jab
Nature: Jolly/Adamant
EVs: 4 HP/252 Atk/252 Spe
Item: Choice Band
Ability: Sniper
