"Draw" is a word with many meanings. In the case of "draw a conclusion", it means make formulate a conclusion, putting some information together to see the point where it leads. You can also "draw a bath", meaning pour water into a bath, and "draw a pistol", meaning take the weapon from the holster with the intent to point it at something.

Por lo que entiendo, "Draw" también tiene el significado de "atraer" "sacar" más o menos, y entonces en expresiones como "Draw Conclusions" o "Draw attention to", es expresado como "Atraer conclusiones" (Sacar conclusiones), y Draw attention como "atraer la atención" (Advertir sobre algo/llamar la atención/hacer notar). Y también hay otras formas de usar "Draw", pero no son convencionalmente utilizadas. Ten un buen día!

be the cause of (a specified response): he drew criticism for his lavish spending. • attract (someone) to come to a place or an event: you really drew the crowds with your playing. • induce (someone) to reveal or do something: he refused to be drawn on what would happen. • direct or attract (someone's attention) to something: it was an outrage and we had to draw people's attention to it | a bright red instantly draws the eye. • reach (a conclusion) by deduction or inference from a set of circumstances: the moral to be drawn is that spending wins votes. • formulate or perceive (a comparison or distinction): the law drew a clear distinction between innocent and fraudulent misrepresentation. Both meanings are correct.
