draft is a possible class or package option to change the behavior of the class/package.

The draft option is often used to make the typesetting result of a class or a package easier to debug. Most classes will add a black box at the end of overfull lines with draft. Some packages try to speed up the compilation by skipping external files. The draft option usually has a final counterpart which can be set to a single package if the class is called with draft.
