Harry Draper (1887 – after 1910) was an English professional footballer who played in the Football League for Birmingham.[1]

Draper was born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire. He played local football in Rotherham and spent a season in the Midland League with Rotherham County before joining Birmingham of the Football League Second Division in April 1910.[2] Draper, a playmaker, made three first-team appearances in a struggling side; his debut came on 8 October 1910 in a 3–1 home defeat to Stockport County.[3] He failed to settle, and returned nearer home in September 1911, joining Midland League club Denaby United.[2]
