Today, the minimum required IQ to be a developer has dropped quite a bit.
Companies are not usually looking for special talent. They can train a person in 2 months and have them do the same stuff a person with 2-3 years of experience can (with some scheduling and quality issue but nothing they can't handle).

In short, the work does not demand the same level of expertise it once did.
