I'm not a user of beamer myself (I use powerdot), but if I understand correctly, what you are looking for should be easily achieved by using beamer's own \logo command.
I found it out right from within TeXShop, using the wonderful Help->Show Help for Package… menu command :-)

Here is a quick example:


\logo{\put(-200,100)){\rotatebox{45}{\Huge \textcolor{lightgray}{DRAFT}}}}

     Some stuff stuff stuff ….
