If a drywall screw completely penetrated the tire -- in two places, no less -- there's almost certainly some cord damage. Once cords in the tire's casing are cut, the tire is irreparably damaged. Most of us here would probably toss the tire, but you could certainly try booting it. (I wouldn't trust that damaged tire for fast riding like mountain descents, though.) Tyvek envelopes supposedly work well as boot material. I've got some Kevlar fabric from used drum heads.
