Welcome to the 'ville! 

Hard to say, people come in all sorts of sizes, and different styles of sweaters will take different amounts (a cabled pullover for example, would take more yarn than a plain one).

I'll come back with a couple of multi-sized patterns which will give you a ballpark idea...

This isn't the 'end all' list of patterns, but here is the Red Heart's parent company's pattern page (Includes other brands).

The 'father pullover' is sized from small to 3XL, and takes between 6 to 8 skeins of RHSS, each skein being (7 oz/198 g; 364 yds/333m)

The V-necked cardigan is for adults but the pattern models are women (there's no shaping to make it specific for women), it's also calling out a different brand (Caron) which is the same weight as RHSS so you could substitute it if you want. It goes from extra small to 4/5 XL and takes between 4-9 skeins of Caron Simply Soft, each skein being  (Solids: 6 oz/170.1 g; 315 yds/288 m).  So, if you wanted to make THIS pattern but using the RHSS instead you'd have to do the math for the size you want to make, to figure out the TOTAL yardage the pattern calls for, and divide it by the 364 yards per skein of the RHSS to know how many skeins of RHSS to buy - always round up, and buy all the yarn at once because you'll likely not be able to match dye lots later.
