Drulović was born in Nova Varoš, Serbia, Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. After playing out his contract at FK Rad in the summer of 1992, he signed a two-year deal with Portuguese club Gil Vicente FC, but only played there until December 1993, after which he moved to the Primeira Liga with FC Porto; between both teams, he finished the 1993–94 season with a career-best 18 goals.
Drulović was one of very few players to have contributed to each of Porto's five consecutive titles during the 90s. He was mostly remembered at the side for his pin-point assists and ability to cross the ball, mainly to the head of Mário Jardel.
In 2001, already 33, Drulović moved to S.L. Benfica. After a slow 2002–03 campaign, he returned home and signed with FK Partizan, being one of the most influential players in the club as it reached the group stage in the UEFA Champions League; he moved back to Portugal a year later, finishing out his career with F.C. Penafiel alongside former Porto teammate António Folha.
In early April 2008, Drulović became manager of FK Banat Zrenjanin in the Serbian SuperLiga. As the fifth manager of the season – he replaced Žarko Soldo – he took over a team under relegation threat (eighth place out of 12), with eleven matches to go. Eventually, he could not help prevent them from dropping down a level after a 1–4 loss to FK Vojvodina on 17 May.
Drulović made his debut for FR Yugoslavia on 28 December 1996, in a friendly with Argentina played in Mar del Plata (3–2). He went on to play a further 37 times in the following five years, appearing for the nation at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 2000 tournaments and contributing with one goal (in the 3–3 group stage draw against Slovenia) and three assists in the latter as the country reached the quarter-finals.
