The first thing you would need is the PDF file to utilize vector graphics in order for third party software to function correctly. If the PDF is based on using raster graphics you will need to trace the linework in order to create a DWG format file.

Some PDF to DWG conversion software:

Take a look at Able2Extract:

They have a free trial download. Also, you may want to try the online service to see how it works on your particular docs, as PDF to Autocad (or PDF to Excel or PDF to Word or PDF to just about anything) is never perfect, and can vary widely from one source document to the next):
