I've done this setup before and didn't get enough signal from the SM57s as overheads, and got a "non-representative" sound from the bass drum as well. I wouldn't recommend it.
If you wanted to get a Shure drum mic set, you can find the 3 SM57/1 Beta 52 sets used for around $200-250. That's if you wanted to use all 4 channels on your board with close miking. I would recommend a decent kick drum mic (AKG D112), and one decent condenser overhead (or two, if you want a stereo mix).
