I was mistaken in an earlier post on this. Indeed a new "draft" has been discovered, though not of the KJ Bible as a whole.
P.S. An apocryphal story, dimly remembered from a lecture by John Arthos at Michigan in the spring of 1955. Story involves a KJ translator taking a rough draft (I think of Isaiah) to a bar, asking a fellow drinker to help him. The fellow returns to the bar a day or so later with a revised text. The translator asks his name; seems it was a fellow by the name of Shakespeare. (I'm sure my memory is in part at least defective, but it was roughly something like this.)

From The New York Times:
Earliest Known Draft of King James Bible Is Found, Scholar Says
An American professor happened upon a manuscript by one of the Bible’s translators at Cambridge, a discovery that may shed light on how the translators worked.
