Just because someone can have a draw doesn't mean you can think about calling. For example if someone only jams the flop with sets and draws - you must fold everything to them. In that case the chance they have a draw is quite high, the problem is even when they have a draw their equity is still good (30-35%). Either you have 0% (vs a set) or only 65% (vs a draw). You need to be actually beating some of their range to consider calling. Most people are way too loose about calling just because "the board is drawy, he could be shoving a draw" ; this is why it's so great to shove real hands, even as weak as single pair overpairs on drawy flops.
