There are no easy drawing programs. I've only tried a few programs, but IMHO, Sketchup is not hard to learn. There are lots of very good YouTube videos. I learned plenty from them. OR, I Suggest you buy the very excellent ebook :

Trust me. If you will dedicate one day to that book, you will be drawing boxes and boards at day's end.

TIP: print a hard copy of the first five chapters if you don't have another device, such as a tablet, to display the ebook.
If I sound like an evangelist, it's 'cause I am. Sketchup rocks! It's 3D and it's free!
