I don't think I would use a screwdriver even with a rag covering it. The potential for the metal making it's way through the cloth and scarring your paint is way too great. I do agree that the 3M eraser wheel is absolutely invaluable for debadging.

I don't see the need to reinvent the wheel here. Fishing line works great. Use some heavy test line or double it up so it won't break. Wear gloves so it doesn't cut into your fingers and work the badge off in a sawing motion. Zero chance of scratching your truck with fishing line. 3M eraser wheel is by far the easiest way to get the adhesive off and follow up with whatever goo remover you like (as long as it's safe for paint....I use Goo Gone Pro and it works great). Finish with a polish if needed and some wax and be done.
