In addition to Daniel K's suggestion for a horizontal-mount connector, you should also consider the mechanical benefits of through hole (THT) components. I've had issues with SMT-only horizontal USB connectors pulling up from the board and ripping the traces themselves.
A good compromise can be a combination of SMT pins for the USB connections with THT mounting points for the connector body, which I've found provides a lot of help with mechanical strength.
Generally, surface mount solder joints alone shouldn't be relied on for mechanical support of connectors* with significant mating cycles or non-trivial mass. This is especially true for vertical style connectors as shown in your image, where you can easily get a lot of leverage on the connector body and snap the part off the board.
*Small embedded connectors that are not user accessible are a different story.
