painting walls

I just got done stripping my wallpaper, in some areas the top layer of the sheetrock came off, and in other areas, it looks like a little of the layer of paint can off, making the wall look like a bunch of "puck" marks.
I sealed all these areas over this Gardz wall repair.
I plan on doing two coats of primer and two coats of paint.
My question is if while doing the cutting in of the edges, if I were to put a layer of primer and/or paint on those spots, and then do the regular coats...would I be able to advoid the messy, time consuming job of joint compounding those areas for a smooth finish.

Unfortunately not. Neither the primer nor the paint will ever level the area out right. Joint compund really isn't that messy and when it's dry it will still wash out of clothes and off surfaces rather easily. Prime again over the joint compound.
