The Tigers have been linked with both players and chairman Adam Pearson has told planetfootball that they are looking to sign the pair.
Dawson, 24, is ready to leave Glanford Park having spent over four years with The Iron.
McDermott is available on a free transfer from relegated Grimsby and is another that ambitious Hull are looking to lure.
The 34-year-old has been at Blundell Park since 1987 and has played over 600 games for The Mariners, but he is now set to try his luck elsewhere.
"We are definitely interested in Andy Dawson and John McDermott is another we are looking at," Pearson told planetfootball.com.
"Peter Taylor knows what we want and we are looking.
"However, nobody will be coming in until around June, when we have sorted our own squad out."
