Hi!
For data modeling with Cassandra, besides DataStax DevCenter (which is still used but not being actively developed anymore), there is a tool called Hackolade that supports it (among other NoSQL); and there is a tool called Kashlev Data Modeler, specific to Cassandra.
These offer a GUI and diagram-based data modeling.
I'm not aware of other tools at the moment.

Does devcenter has any feature which supports diagrams?

DataStax DevCenter (EOL'd; only compatible up to DSE 5.0) does not offer any diagramming capabilities. On a tangential topic, I would recommend practicing data modeling by example using this completely web-based online tutorial. A similar question is also answered here.
