With sticking caliper, wheel rim will generally be hot to the touch. If it's cool after drive (and not heavy braking coming home), then not likely caliper dragging pads. Problem often comes from piston sticking out well as brakes wear down. New pad install and the piston is shoved into cylinder. If a vehicle is prone to that, either pop out piston and clean with steel wool, replace rubber parts, or replace wheel cylinder when complete brake job done.
